    Chicago Memorial Day Weekend Violence: 12 killed, 43 wounded



    CHICAGO - Twelve people were killed and at least 43 -- including a 4-year-old girl -- were wounded in shootings across Chicago during Memorial Day weekend, reports CBS Chicago.

    The 4-year-old, identified by her family as Jacele Johnson, was shot around 8 p.m. Friday. She was inside an SUV with her 17-year-old cousin, Romare Wilson, when another vehicle pulled up and someone inside opened fire, according to their family and Chicago Police.

    The child was shot in the head and taken to Comer Children's Hospital in critical condition, authorities said. She has since been upgraded to fair condition, a hospital spokeswoman said Monday morning.

    That's tragic, particularly when little children get caught in the cross hairs.

    Of course Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws in the country. Goes to show it does not work.

    It's a social problem, not a gun problem. They never will identify the nature of the problem, so the slaughter will continue.
