From ABC News:  At least 17 people were killed and over 40 injured in Chicago’s street violence over the weekend.

Two Chicago newspapers that analyzed police data from Friday afternoon to early Monday called it 2016’s deadliest weekend. Chicago police couldn’t immediately confirm that, though a spokesman said their weekend homicide count from Friday midnight through Sunday was 18.

Either way, the toll surpassed the Chicago Tribune and Sun-Times’ analysis of holiday weekends when violence typically spikes. The Tribune reports six people were fatally shot over Memorial Day weekend, five over Fourth of July, and 13 over Labor Day.

The October weekend deaths included seven people under 20 years old. Seventeen-year-old twin brothers were killed in a Sunday drive-by.

There’s been a spike in street violence this year with over 600 homicides already.
