This weekend, gun violence killed three people and wounded another 39 in Chicago. Among the wounded is a 2-year-old girl, according to Sun Times Media Wire.

A family gathered in the Gresham neighborhood just after 5 PM Friday. Suddenly, a drive-by shooter opened fire on the family. They all took cover, including the mother of the 2-year-old girl, who was holding her child at the time. Still, a bullet struck the child in the arm. Another man was also wounded in the leg. Someone among them returned fire with an AK-47. As a result, no one died. However, no one has yet to be arrested for the shooting either.

Then, another drive-by shooter opened fire at a funeral later that Friday. The shooter struck three people, mostly elderly. Now, they are all receiving treatment at nearby hospitals.

Next, yet another drive-by shooter attacked a pair of teenage boys on the street Saturday. One was 17 years old and the other was 18 years old. Bullets struck the both of them around 5:40 PM. The 18 year old was critically wounded in the chest.
