Chicago local media pointed out that since June 20, 10 children under the age of 18 have died of gun violence in Chicago. This years situation is even more serious than the five deaths and 65 injuries caused by the shooting over the weekend of Independence Day in 2019.
It is reported that Lori Lightfoot, mayor of Chicago, has deployed an additional 1200 Chicago police officers in response to possible violence over the weekend, but gun violence continues. When it comes to the shooting of children, letterford tweeted: there is another 7-year-old girl whose hopes and dreams have been destroyed because of the gun. We cant be numb about it. Weve made progress in slowing down the shooting, but we have to do better, everyone has to do better. It is reported that the relevant shooting investigation is in progress.
