47 People Shot In Less Than 24 Hours In Chicago, 7 Killed


Nearly 50 people were shot in just under 24 hours in Chicago in the city’s latest streak of violence — a streak which has now lasted for more than a year. At least seven people were killed, including one Chicago police officer who was gunned down in the line of duty on Saturday. A second Chicago police officer remains in critical condition from the same incident. The past weekend marks the worst weekend of Chicago violence so far this year. As the Daily Wire reported earlier on Monday, “[t]wenty-nine-year-old [Ella] French, a three-and-a-half-year veteran of the force, died over the weekend after she was shot during a traffic stop. French is the first officer to be shot and killed in the line of duty since [Chicago Mayor Lori] Lightfoot took office in 2019, and the first female officer to be killed since 1988.” The Chicago Tribune added that at “least 47 people were shot in less than 24 hours in Chicago, seven of them fatally, including a Chicago police officer who was killed by gunfire as she and her partner were making a traffic stop in the West Englewood neighborhood. The slain officer’s partner was also wounded and remained hospitalized Sunday from his injuries.”
