At least 48 people were shot — eight fatally — in incidents of gun violence within city limits over the weekend.
Shootings escalated as the weekend went on: Nine people were wounded Friday after 5 p.m., 15 were shot Saturday and Sunday saw 24 people shot.
On Sunday, a 3-year-old boy died from what Chicago police said may be an accidental gunshot wound in South Deering.
Family members told police they were in another room in the 9600 block of South Escanaba when they heard a gunshot at about 4:15 p.m., CPD spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said. They rushed to see what happened and found the boy with the gun. He suffered a gunshot wound to the face, police said.
Family members took the boy to Trinity Hospital where he was pronounced dead, Guglielmi said.
The Cook County medical examiner’s office hasn’t provided details about his death.
The Department of Children and Family Services has been called in to assist police investigations, Guglielmi said.
The weekend’s latest fatal gun violence incident happened a few hours earlier in Lawndale on the West Side.
Officers responded to a ShotSpotter alert about 4:59 a.m. in the 3200 block of West Douglas Boulevard, police said. There, they found a 24-year-old man with multiple gunshot wounds, including to his face and head.
He was pronounced dead on the scene, police said.
On Saturday, another man was found shot to death a few blocks away in the same neighborhood.
About 8:20 p.m., Curtis Davis was sitting in a vehicle in the 4000 block of West Grenshaw Street when he was shot in the back of the head, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
A few hours earlier, a man was discovered fatally wounded in a home in Park Manor on the South Side.

He was taken to Stroger Hospital where he later died, police said.
Another man, 30, was also struck by gunfire, police said. He was walking on the sidewalk when shots rang out and was hit in the back. He was taken to Loyola University Medical Center where his condition was stabilized.
Earlier, two women were killed and a man was wounded in a triple shooting in Gresham on the South Side.

WJZ reports the first shooting, which proved fatal, occurred around shortly after 1 pm. Officers rushed to the scene and “found a man with gunshot wounds to his body.” He was taken to a hospital, where he died.
Fox 5 News reports that two double shootings occurred minutes apart later in the day.
The first of the two occurred at 10:47 pm, leaving a 26-year-old male dead and a second individual injured. The second of double shootings occurred at 10:56 pm, fatally wounding a 19-year-old male. A 17-year-old was “shot in the back” during the shooting as well.
On July 25, 2019, Breitbart News reported eight persons were shot in one night of violence in Baltimore. One of the shooting victims died from his wounds.
In mid-June 2019 Breitbart News reported Balitmore’s shootings were on track to surpass last year’s numbers, which were up considerably over prior years. The Baltimore Sun’s Justin Fenton reported the shootings in Baltimore were up nearly 80 percent in 2018, compared to figures from 2014. And shootings in 2019 are at a pace to surpass 2018.
Baltimore, like the whole of Maryland, has a confiscatory Red Flag Law, an “assault weapons” ban, a “high capacity” magazine ban, and registration/fingerprint requirements for handgun purchasers.

KGW8 TV reported,
Portland State University students rallied at a Thursday board meeting, calling for campus police officers to be disarmed.
“Police with guns are ticking time bomb,” said Olivia Pace, one of the students who spoke in front of the Portland State University Board of Trustees.
Students in favor of disarming campus police held signs and spoke at the board meeting. They said they believe it has taken far too long for university leadership to take action…
At Thursday’s board meeting, multiple students spoke directly to trustees, voicing their frustration with the lack of decision making on the issue.
“We feel like the longer the university pushes this off to more and more committees and more and more third parties, the issue will kind of just dissolve,” said Pace.
Earlier this year a report, commissioned by the university, found that more than half of students and faculty supported disarming campus officers. That same report also recommended keeping campus police armed.
Really? And what happens if a criminal with a gun comes onto the campus. Will the Campus police tell them to drop the weapon or they will tell the dean? Or their mommies?
Last year PSU officers shot and killed Jason Washington – who was a legal gun carrier that happened to drop his weapon as he was trying to break up a fight. The Campus Cops testified:
When Washington got up, the officers say he was holding the gun in his hand.
“I’m screaming, like, begging really – for this guy to drop his gun,” Dewey told the grand jury.
Both officers said they told Washington to drop the gun. Then they said he pointed it in their direction.
“In my mind, I’m like thinkin’ I’m gonna be shot right there, and I fire a couple rounds,” said McKenzie. “I see him fall to the ground. Uh, when I see that, I saw firing. I, my next thought process is if he’s wounded, he can shoot at us again at the last know location we were at.”
That testimony was confirmed by a Portland Police forensic technician who was called in to examine the body camera video of the shooting, slowing it down and enhancing the video to see whether Washington pointed his gun at police.
Video shows PSU officers fatally shooting man; grand jury report says the gun was friend’s
The technician, Portland Police Bureau officer Anthony Eugenio, showed the grand jury that Washington’s right arm was extended in front of his body with a black object in his hand, consistent with a firearm.
When asked if he believed that Washington pointed the gun towards the officers, he said that is “correct.”
A grand jury cleared the two Campus police and based on the testimony it seems that by using their service revolvers the two campus police saved lives (including their own)
Even so, the story of Jason Washington was a tragedy. But the students think the campus police officers are “dangerous” because they carry guns—and they are dangerous to students who point a gun at them.
How many of these students worry about a mass shooter, armed robber, a rapist with a gun, or any other kind of gun-wielding criminal gets onto the Campus? How many of them would be quickly shot dead if their campus police were unarmed? Who would stop a shooter? They are valid questions, ones that the “social justice warrior” crowd ignores.

An official document detailing the incident was given to the Breitbart Border Team who say government officials will soon make a public announcement.
Sources say three unknown individuals opened the door of a Mobile Surveillance Camera (MSC) vehicle and attempted to pull the Marine out.
One man tried to grab the Marine’s firearm during the struggle, causing a shot to be fired which hit an infrared display unit on the dash of the vehicle.
Upon hearing the gunshot, the three individuals fled, but Border Patrol believes nobody was injured by the gunfire.
The Marine who was attacked was left to watch over the vehicle as another Marine and a Border Patrol agent worked on fixing an issue with the vehicle’s surveillance display.
Border Patrol agents arrived at the scene within minutes of the attack and found at least one of the individuals involved two miles away after a brief search.
CBP is leading an ongoing investigation into the event and the Pentagon is preparing a public statement.
This comes on the heels of another report claiming 15 armed cartel members approached a section of border wall being built near El Paso, Texas and threatened construction crews working on the project.
Below is a special report highlighting the increasingly out of control situation at America’s southern border.
