Chicago Police Don't Have Explanation for Surge in Violence


Chicago police say they don’t have a clear explanation for a surge in violence over the long holiday weekend.

 

More than 80 people were shot… and 14 were killed… in incidents across the city between Thursday and Sunday.

 

Five people were shot by police, including two teenagers who were killed in separate incidents in which they refused orders to drop their weapons.

 

Police superintendent Garry McCarthy blames part of the problem on the continuing prevalence of firearms on Chicago streets… and is calling for tougher penalties for those who violate gun laws.
