    Shots rang out across the city Saturday night and Sunday morning -- from the Far North Side to the Far South Side -- with preliminary reports of nearly two dozen people shot.

    The overnight tally -- which is unofficial -- included two shootings on the same corner, a fatal shooting near the Taste of Chicago and several on the West Side, where detectives were swamped.

    "We're just spinning up here,'' one detective said.

    Numerous incidents of gunfire and related injuries were reported overnight Saturday. Among them:

    *At 9:45 p.m. Saturday, 20-year-old Christopher Sanders of Chicago was fatally shot during a fight one block from the Taste of Chicago.

    *At 6:06 a.m. Sunday near Damen and 38th, a man was shot in the shoulder, police said.

    In between:

    *A man was shot in the head at 11:52 p.m. at 4129 W. Van Buren.

    *A 38-year-old man was shot and killed at 3:15 a.m. in the street in the 1400 block of West Carmen.

    *And a man was left in critical condition after a drive-by shooting at 5:30 a.m. at 12434 S. Wentworth, police said.

    There were two shootings at the corner of 52nd and Mozart.

    *The first came at 9:47 p.m. when a man was shot in the foot.

    *Hours later, at 1:38 a.m., two men sitting on a porch at the corner were shot by someone who pulled up in a dark Ford Escort wagon, police said.

    Fest shooting under review


    Several other incidents involved multiple victims, and there were reports of more than 20 people wounded, police said.

    First Deputy Chicago Police Supt. Dana Starks was on patrol near the Taste of Chicago late Sunday. Starks would be reviewing that fatal shooting and other incidents.




    Good thing Mayor Dailey banned the guns or could have been much worse!

    Suddenly Philadelphia looks good! I guess we'll just have to try harder.

    Mayor Street of Philly clamped down on CCW permits when we had 8 dead in one weekend.

    What will Mayor Dailey do?

    My Lord - and there aren't even any US troops deployed in Chicago.

    Am I wrong to think that Baghdad might actually be a safer place?

    If you consider that there have been an average of 160,000 troops in the Iraq theater of operations during the last 22 months, that gives a firearm death rate of 60 per 100,000.? The rate in Washington, DC is 80.6 per 100,000.? That means that you are 25% more likely to be shot and killed in our Nation's Capitol, which has some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation, than you are in Iraq.

    Conclusion:? We should immediately pull out of Washington, DC.

    If this is this bad guys killing bad guys, or good guys killing bad guys, it may not be so bad.

    If it is bad guys killing innocent people, it is very bad.

    Lies, I tell you. All lies.

    How can you have citywide massacres when guns are strictly controlled. The media has obviously move from reporting the news to making the news. :scrutiny:

    Crime is proportional to heat and humidity.

    Very hot here, very humid here. And we have those eeevil guns about, even armed Hoosiers consuming liquid bread and endangering children.

    No one shot. Odd that. :evil:
