At least 64 people were shot in Chicago over the weekend, including a 12-year-old boy killed by his mother, and an off-duty firefighter and his 15-year-old niece wounded in one of two mass shootings in the city, according to police.
With at least nine people killed, the weekend was deadlier than the extended Labor Day holiday weekend, when 67 people were shot, six of them fatally.
Several children were shot over the weekend.
Two boys, 12 and 13, were wounded Friday night while standing on a front porch in the Austin neighborhood. Five shooting victims were 16 years old.
