Four people, including two 16-year-old boys, were killed and at least 10 people were wounded within 10 hours Thursday across the city, according to Chicago police.
Another person was killed early Friday, in the Logan Square neighborhood on the Northwest Side, bringing to seven the number of people shot to death as the month of August gets underway.
Thursday afternoon’s violence began when two people fired at three 16-year-old boys in the East Garfield Park neighborhood. Two of the boys tried to run away and collapsed in nearby yards. They were pronounced dead at the scene. The third boy survived.
Two gangs, the Four Corner Hustlers and Conservative Vice Lords, have been fighting each other in that area, authorities said.
