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.
