    10 killed in Chicago over hot holiday weekend

    The Associated Press

    Posted: 05/29/2012 08:17:33 AM CDT

    CHICAGO—The sweltering Memorial Day weekend was a violent one in the city of Chicago with more than 40 shootings and 10 homicides reported over the four-day span.

    Among those killed is a man who was shot near a holiday party in the South Shore neighborhood late Monday.

    Police say neighbors reported hearing a loud argument just before shots were fired and partygoers ran from the scene. The Cook County medical examiner's office says 33-year-old Malcolm Dowdy was pronounced dead at Jackson Park Hospital and Medical Center.

    Last year, four people were killed in Chicago during the Memorial Day weekend, but bad storms that year forced many people to stay at home. This year the city experienced record temperatures that peaked in the mid-90s.

    wow pretty crazy!
    We had 67 shot, at least 13 dead, 2 officers shot on 2011 Labor Day weekend...not sure how we fared this Memorial Day, but pretty sure it wasn't nearly as bad as Chicago (since I haven't heard anything). This is nuts, I give Chicago PD a lot of credit, they're very short staffed working in a very bad city...
    Stay safe out there

              Sounds like par for LA NYC Chicago Miami. The bad part of living in the big city.
