Chicago shootings: 6 dead as guns, holiday weekend make deadly mix

6 dead: Chicago shootings leave at least 6 dead and 11 wounded after a weekend of violence in Chicago. The shootings seem to be unrelated acts.

Chicago authorities say at least six people have been killed in weekend violence and at least another 11 wounded.

Police are investigating the death of a 42-year-old man who was shot in the head early Sunday. The county medical examiner says Charles Jones was pronounced dead at around 3:30 a.m. The shooting stemmed from a crash and a woman was taken to the hospital.

Also killed Sunday was a man in his late 20s who was shot in the armpit and pronounced dead at a suburban hospital.

Two people were killed in shootings Saturday, including 18-year-old Fearro Denard and a 29-year-old man who was shot not far from President Barack Obama's South Side home.

On Friday, a 17-year-old and 22-year old were killed in separate shootings.
