Chicago's most violent weekend this year has seen 6 killed and over 36 Wounded

CHICAGO -- Six people age 16 to 40 were shot to death and at least 36 people were wounded in Chicago's most violent weekend this year, authorities said.

The victims included 16-year-old Kevin Rivera, who was killed late Saturday when a gunman on a bicycle shot him as he walked in an alley near his home, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
Killed in separate incidents were Jamal Jones, 19, Ricardo Herrera, 21, McGregory Porter, 24, Cortez Wilberton, 31, and Todd Wood, 40.

The violence is unnerving residents of the city.
"I had a family from my parish tell me recently that their 10-year-old son didn't want to come back to Chicago from vacation because of the violence," the Rev. Michael Pfleger of St. Sabina Catholic Church said.
