Almost one hundred people were shot over the July 4th weekend in Democrat Mayor Lori Lightfoot's Chicago.

As violent crime continues to spiral out of control on Lightfoot's watch, 98 people were shot, 17 fatally, from “Friday at 6 p.m. to 11:59 p.m. on Monday,” according to a report by ABC 7.

However, the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting the number of fatalities to be 19.

As ABC 7 points out, 87 people were shot during that same period over the Independence Day holiday last year.

The weekend's violence also follows Thursday's bloodbath, which saw 32 people shot in a single day.

A one-month-old baby girl who was shot in the head was among Thursday's wounded.

The violence and death have surged to such levels that Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown plans to speak at a press conference.

Brown agreed to take questions from reporters on Tuesday afternoon.

On July 5, 2021, Brown tweeted:

Our officers continue to work tirelessly to keep our city safe.

"As of today, Chicago Police Department has recovered over 6,100 guns: a 26% increase from the same period last year.

"I commend our officers for their continued hard work during these challenging times for law enforcement.”

The Sun-Times observed there were over 1,892 shootings in Chicago January 1, 2021, through June 28, 2021.

The number is a 12 percent increase over the same time frame last year.

Over 330 people were killed in Chicago during the first six months of 2021.
