A series of deadly shootings resulted in at least 10 deaths and 60 injuries during the Fourth of July weekend in Chicago, many of which are suspected to be the result of gang violence.
The 72 victims were shot over the course of four days in what proved to be an especially violent holiday. The youngest victim was 5-year-old Jaden Donald, who was watching celebratory fireworks at a park when he was shot. The oldest victim was 72-year-old woman who was shot in the ankle, police told NBC Chicago.
Authorities have arrested and charged 24-year-old Darrell Chambers with attempted murder and aggravated battery involving three of the 72 shootings. Chambers has been accused of shooting the 5-year-old and two other men at the South Side Chicago park on July 4. During a press conference, prosecutors said the violence was the result of a gang war between two different circles of a group called the Gangster Disciples.
