CHICAGO — No one was shot overnight Sunday into Monday, bringing a quiet end to a violent weekend in the city that left one man dead and 14 people wounded.
Chicago police said that as of midnight Sunday, shootings are still down 22 percent over last year and overall crime is down 15 percent.
"While there has been less crime, fewer shootings and fewer murders in Chicago this year, there's certainly more work to be done and no one will rest until we reach the ultimate goal of zero crime," police spokesman Adam Collins said in a statement.
"Chicago Police continue to implement a comprehensive strategy, saturating high-crime areas with additional officers, using intelligence to prevent retaliatory gang shootings, moving officers from administrative positions back to the streets, and partnering with the community."
Collins said police seized 186 illegal guns last week.
"To reduce violence for the long-term our state and our country need better laws to keep illegal guns out of our communities and punish the criminals who carry them," Collins said.
Overnight Friday seven people were wounded in shootings, including four people were shot in one incident in Washington Park. Two people were wounded in a shooting in Little Village Friday evening, there were also two people shot Friday morning.
