CHICAGO (CBS) — At least 33 people have been shot in Chicago so far this weekend, three of them fatally.
At least four of the victims this weekend were 17 or younger. Two dogs also were wounded in separate shootings, alongside human victims in those attacks.
The weekend’s violence also included a mass shooting early Saturday morning in Chatham, which left one woman dead and nine other people wounded.

A 29-year-old woman, identified as Kimfier Miles, was shot in the abdomen and knee, and was pronounced dead at University of Chicago Medical Center, according to police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.
The other nine victims included eight men and one woman, ranging in age from 23 to 46. All nine were in either fair or good condition, and were being treated at five separate hospitals.
