9 dead in Wednesday shootings

By Loyola Student Dispatch Staff

Nine people, including an 11-year-old boy, were shot dead on Wednesday.

The high number of fatalities will make September 2 the deadliest day in Chicago since 2010, according to an article from DNAinfo.

Below are more details from the story:

Previously, the highest single-day homicide count was Thursday, April 15, 2010, when seven people were killed.

The slain included the young boy, who was accidentally killed by a family member; a 60-year-old man; and a series of young men killed in individual shootings on Chicago streets.
