Seven children suffered injuries from various shootings in Chicago this weekend, while 4-year-old Mychal Moultry died from his gunshot wounds. Including adults, 65 people were shot over Labor Day Weekend according to the Sun Times Media Wire.
Moultry was in his own home Friday night. Someone braided his hair just as a gunman shot into the house from the outside. As a result, bullets flying in from the window struck Moultry twice in the head. Later, he died at Comer Children’s Hospital. He is the 35th fatal victim to gun violence in Chicago this year alone. 2021 shootings wounded 280 children so far.
Police Superintendent David O. Brown held a press conference Monday. Over the weekend, police reported they confiscated 64 illegally possessed weapons. Just this year alone they’ve confiscated 8,500 total illegal weapons. As a result there have been 4,000 arrests since January.
Yet Deputy Chief Gale blamed recent violence on gangs. “We are aware that a lot of the street gangs here in the city of Chicago are responsible to the violence that is going on on our streets and affecting our children,” Gale said. Currently, there are charges against four gangs, including the Gangster Disciples, Conservative Vice Lords, Traveling Vice Lords and Four Corner Hustlers. Police are also offering a $9,000 reward for information on Moultry’s death.
Superintendent Brown agreed that gangs are to blame. “It’s always some other offender, gang member, criminal network, some beef, and they’re targeting some adult, and young people are nearby and they are shot as innocent bystanders,” Brown said.
Still, a 13 year old is receiving treatment at Comer Children’s Hospital after being shot in the head on Saturday night. He was in the basement of a home at 9 PM when a gunman shot through the window.
Earlier that day, a gunman opened fire at an after-school event in East Garfield Park. Two siblings under the age of 16 were struck. Luckily they have already fully recovered. Police recovered a vehicle associated with the shooting, but no one is in custody yet.

Fox News reports that “Menstrual Dignity for Students” tool kits containing instructions and tips for “menstruation-positive” language for families.
Part of the kit reads: “Importantly, [the Menstrual Dignity Act] affirms the right to menstrual dignity for transgender, intersex, nonbinary, and two spirit students by addressing the challenges that some students have managing menstruation while minimizing negative attention that could put them at risk of harm and navigating experiences of gender dysphoria during menstruation.”
