Forty-nine people were gunned down, 5 fatally, from Friday to Sunday in another bloody Chicago weekend that included a mass shooting.

A total of six victims, two men and four women, were shot while standing on a sidewalk in one incident, according to CBS Chicago. A witness of the violence told the local outlet he “had to hide because it sounded like it was so close that it was going to bust through my window.”

Additionally, two 16-year-old boys and three 17-year-old males were hit by gunfire — all in separate incidents — throughout the three-day period, according to CBS Chicago.
