According to NBC Chicago:
At least six people were killed and 15 others wounded in gun violence across Chicago Labor Day weekend.
Among them was a teen who was shot Monday morning along a Chicago Public Schools Safe Passage Route. The 19-year-old man was shot around 10 a.m. in the 1500 block of South Tripp Avenue, on the same block as Charles Evans Hughes Elementary School, police said. He was transported to Mount Sinai Hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg and listed in stable condition.
Police said the victim has known gang affiliations.
The Chicago Public School's Safe Passage routes are designed to provide students a designated, protected path as they travel to and from school. Routes were not staffed Monday because students were out for the Labor Day holiday.
Early Saturday morning, one man was killed and two others were injured in a violent attack in Chicago’s Bridgeport neighborhood. The shooting took place around 2:30 a.m. in the 3800 block of South Halsted Street where police found a 21-year-old man dead in an apartment building, police said.
Another man, 21, was found shot in the head and was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in critical condition, according to Chicago Police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli.
A third man, 25, was found with gunshot wounds to the head and leg after his vehicle crashed into a light pole near 43rd Street and Wentworth Avenue, Mirabelli said. Mirabelli said no other details were available on the shooting and it was not clear if the 25-year-old man was fleeing the scene.
Less than an hour later, a 19-year-old man was shot in the Pilsen neighborhood in the 1000 block of W. 20th Street.
Police said a light-colored SUV drove by and fired shots at the teen, striking him in the left leg. He was transported to Stroger Hospital in stable condition.
