WSET (Chicago), May 29, 2012
The sweltering Memorial Day weekend was a violent one in the city of Chicago with more than 40 shootings and 10 homicides reported over the four-day span.
Among those killed is a man who was shot near a holiday party in the South Shore neighborhood late Monday.
Last year, four people were killed in Chicago during the Memorial Day weekend, but bad storms that year forced many people to stay at home. This year the city experienced record temperatures that peaked in the mid-90s.
