Chicago saw its deadliest day in at least 60 years last month, with 18 killings within a 24 hour period on May 31st, 2020

The violence occurred as protests over George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis also spurred rioting and looting in the Windy City.

Over the last weekend in May – a three day holiday – 85 people were shot and 24 killed, according to the University of Chicago Crime Lab.

Most of the victims were black.

The dead and injured include students, parents and middle-aged workers, according to the data published in the Chicago Sun-Times” (BBCnews, 2020).
