Chicago officials have their hands full this morning, trying to put some spin on a very bloody weekend.
CHICAGO (CBS) – Police Supt. Garry McCarthy said a bloody holiday weekend that saw at least nine people shot and killed and dozens others wounded “doesn’t wipe out” reductions in violent crime in the past two years.
Since Friday evening, at least nine people were shot and killed in Chicago, and at least 36 others were wounded.
“This doesn’t wipe out what has happened over the last two years, and this is a conversation that we’ve had time and time again,” Police Supt. Garry McCarthy said Monday morning. “There’s no magic formula here.
