Chicago has seen yet another violent weekend, with almost 50 shootings resulting in the death of 8 people, under Democratic Mayor Lori Lightfoot's watch.

But according to city officals, there have been zero arrests of any of the shooters.

On Friday, a 14-year-old boy, a 21-year-old man, and a 27-year-old woman had shots fired at them as they stood on a sidewalk, according to WMAQ-TV.

All three were rushed to the hospital, and their condition is still not yet known.

On the same day, an armed man kicked down the door of a first-floor apartment shooting a 60-year-old man in the neck and 23-year-old in the arm, according to police.

The 60-year-old died from his injuries, and the 23-year-old is still recovering at the University of Chicago Medical Center.

Just under an hour later, another three people inside a vehicle were shot.

One was a 20-year-old man who died after being shot in the chest, while the other two aged 19 and 30 survived their injuries.

Just after midnight, a 67-year-old man who was walking on the sidewalk was shot and killed.

Hours later, a group of five people was shot, police said.

A 25-year-old man was hit in the chest and pronounced dead at Mount Sinai, while the remaining four people were injured but survived.

Minutes after that incident, an 18-year-old man was shot while he was driving, causing him to collide with a tree.

He was pronounced dead at the scene after police found him in the wrecked vehicle.

Later the same morning, a 26-year-old man was found lying on the ground with gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead.

On Sunday afternoon, a gunman got out of a car and fired shots at two boys – ages 10 and 11 – and a 27-year-old man, according to Fox 32.

Last week, Mayor lightfoot blamed President Donald Trump on the soaring gun crime in her city

Between Friday and Sunday evening, at least three more people were killed, and 30 others were injured due to shootings.

Last week, Mayor lightfoot blamed President Donald Trump on the soaring gun crime in her city, only weeks after refusing his help.

Lightfoot, a Democrat, said it was Trump's failure to take action on gun reform legislation, which was to blame for the violence.

“We’re doing an all-hands-on-deck strategy, we’re really focussing on the root causes of the violence, but fundamentally we have too many illegal guns on our street, and that is a direct result of a failure of federal leadership,” Lightfoot said.

A week earlier, lightfoot blamed the massive spike in violent gun crime on "too many guns" on the streets.

Lightfoot suggested gun control was the solution.

“That’s a complicated question,” Lightfoot said.

“We have way too many guns on the streets.”
