8 wounded, 30 shot in Chicago Sunday

I'll bet you won't see this story on your news, remember this is since midnight last night.

8 wounded in Gresham shooting; At least 30 shot in Chicago Sunday

Dozens of people tried to dodge bullets overnight in shootings on the city's South and West sides.

Dozens of people were wounded in shootings across Chicago Sunday, police said.

At least 30 people have been shot since midnight and one person was killed.

Since Friday night, 47 people have been shot and five people killed.

In one shooting in the Gresham neighborhood, eight people were wounded, police said.

Police said a group of people, three teens and five adults, were standing in a courtyard in the 1300-block of West 76th Street at about 12:40 a.m. when several people approached on foot and opened fire at the group. The victims range in age from 14-years-old to 35 years-old.

Several had multiple gunshot wounds. All of them were transported to area hospitals and all are expected to survive.

No one is in custody in connection with the shooting.

This comes just days after Superintendent Eddie Johnson visited ABC7 and talked about decreasing crime numbers and overall violence in Chicago.

"I think some of our more challenging, communities, it's just imperative that police and the community work together to reduce this gun violence," Superintendent Johnson said. "We just have too many guns on the streets of Chicago."

Thank goodness those numbers are decreasing.

Might want to consider fencing it all in and walking away.

Chicago's stats:

Year to Date
Shot & Killed: 283
Shot & Wounded: 1471
Total Shot: 1754
Total Homicides: 337

A reporter doing an on scene report of a shooting on CBS was surprised that a bullet could travel more then a block.

Where is the Reverend Jackson, Al Sharpton and BLM? How many of those kids could've looked like Obama's son? Have the marches, riots and looting started yet?

Can I ask, without being called racist, why the proportion of blacks involved in those statistics is NEVER brought up? Seems to me all of the "more challenging communities" around the country are black? I think if you're going to have a conversation about the problem that fact needs to be part of the discussion on some level? I'm not sure what the exact penalties for are in IL but mandatory minimums for illegal firearms seemed to lower the number of shootings/murders in NYC?

Jackson and Sharpton don't come out at night, it's too dangerous without bodyguards.

They just recently had a march protesting all the shootings but they go up to the more affluent (safer) neighborhoods on the north side of the city to do it.

And, consider that Detroit still leads this group of losers, but Chicago, Milwaukee and Rockford all make the top 15, nationally.
