At least 41 people have been shot in Chicago in the past day.

Chicago, IL – At least 41 people have been shot in Chicago since 11 a.m. Saturday through Sunday morning.

At least three of the people who were shot have died.

Two men were shot in the 6800 block of Wood Street.

Numerous more people were injured or killed in individual shootings.

16 of the victims are teenagers according to Chicago Tribune. 12 were age 17 or younger.

Many of the victims were not the intended targets of the shootings, but were caught in the crossfire as the gunmen and intended targets escaped unscathed.

The shootings overwhelmed Mount Sinai Hospitals’ emergency department, resulting in them closing down to accepting any new patients.

Chicago Tribune talked to a local resident who talked about how brazen the shootings have become.

“If they shoot you, they don’t even run,” he told Chicago Tribune. “They just walk away, they ain’t trying to run.”

Chicago PD will be holding a press conference on Sunday to discuss the shootings.
