Ten people were killed and 52 others were injured in shootings since Thursday afternoon. The number of shootings was down from the Fourth of July weekend last year, but more people were killed. Police superintendent Garry McCarthy called for an end to the violence, after a 7-year-old boy was among those fatalities. Amari Brown was shot after someone opened fire just before midnight Saturday in the Humboldt Park neighborhood. He was pronounced dead early Sunday at Stroger Hospital. Relatives say the boy had been celebrating with family when he was shot. The boy’s father, who would not speak with WGN, is a documented gang member who police said was the intended target.
