Chicago faith leaders address deadly shootings, crowds at Stroger

posted by Joe Soto - 

Chicago's most violent weekend of the year continued right into Monday and overnight with several more shootings. Police say three men were wounded Monday afternoon on West Iowa in the South Austin neighborhood. Two of the victims remain in critical condition. These most recent shootings follow a deadly weekend where 75 people were shot, and 12 of them died. Chicago faith leaders from around the city gathered Tuesday morning at Stroger Hospital, where gunshot victims were turned away over the weekend because the emergency room was full. The ministers held a pray demonstration for victims, their families and the medical staff -- who were treating victims non-stop over the weekend.
