Five people were fatally gunned down across Chicago and another 25 were injured over the course of four days – including Easter Weekend – as the city struggles keeping folks at home during the coronavirus pandemic.

The news comes just days after Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot imposed a curfew that prohibited the sale of liquor after 9 pm in an effort to stop those defying Illinois’s shelter-in-place order.

Over Easter weekend, 23 people were shot and four of those people died. Three of the four killings took place on Friday evening, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Police found 52-year-old James Perryman with several gunshot wounds in a vehicle on the 4300 block of West Lexington Street at around 1.30 pm on Friday. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Demario Wyatt, 25, was killed in Austin on the West Side of the city at around 6.15 pm. He was struck in the arm and hip and taken to the Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police found another man shot to death in Englewood on the South Side at around 7.50 pm. 22-year-old Ezekiel Moores was found on the 5500 block of South Ashland Avenue with a gunshot wound to the neck.

He was pronounced dead at the University of Chicago Medical Center.

Another man was found shot to death on Saturday in West Pullman on the South Side of the city. He has been identified as 29-year-old LaMarcus Milligan

The weekend’s earliest nonfatal shooting was on Friday in Austin where a 39-year-old man was injured. Another man was also shot late on Friday night after getting into a dispute at a gas station in Chatham.

Three people were shot in a single incident on Saturday in Cottager Grove Heights as they stood on the 9700 block of South University Avenue at approximately 7.30pm.

On Sunday, two men were shot in separate incidents. A 37-year-old man was shot in Eden Gardens on the South Side while inside an apartment. He has been listed as being in fair condition after suffering a gunshot wound to the leg.

A 17-year-old was shot in West Rogers Park on the North Side on Sunday while walking through a gas station at around 830pm. He is in good condition after being struck in the hip.

An hour before this incident, police apprehended a 22-year-old involved in a suspected carjacking in Austin. The suspect was treated for a gunshot wound to the leg before he was turned over to police.

11 other people were shot over the weekend. Last weekend, 20 people were shot and three of them died.

Police also shared that two more people were fatally gunned down on Monday, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

40-year-old Barry McCraw was fatally gunned down after getting into an argument with an unknown male in the parking lot of the O’mi Motel on the Northwest side.

McCraw was struck several times and taken to the Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston where he was pronounced dead.

An hour before the shooting, another fatal shooting took place in South Chicago where a man was shot in the chest.

Four other people were shot across the city on Monday, but they all are expected to live. A 15-year-old boy was the youngest victim of the shooting.

Last week, Mayor Lightfoot announced that she was ‘not messing around’ when she imposed a 9pm curfew on liquor stores and when they can sell booze. The curfew went into effect on Thursday.

‘Far too many have been congregating at stores that sell liquor,’ Lightfoot declared, according to the Sun-Times.

She added: ‘This is not a question of people going outside. … The issue we are addressing is people going well beyond that and, most importantly of all, congregating in a way that puts everyone involved at risk.’

Businesses that ignore the order risk losing their liquor license and other licenses. They could also be met with a steep fine.
