A weekend shooting spree left 10 dead and over 60 people injured in Chicago, which has left the city in a state of havoc.  How can this be?  After all, Chicago is a GUN CONTROLLLED city!  (DUHHHHHHH)

Sixteen of those shot were said to be teenagers, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Sixty-three people have been shot since Friday at 5 p.m., according to ABC 7 in Chicago.

‘We know that some of these incidents were targeted and are related to gang conflicts in those areas,” said Chicago Police Chief of Patrol Fred Waller at a Sunday press conference, ABC 7 reported.

One incident injured a 38-year-old man around 11 a.m. Saturday, who suffered wounds in his lower body, according to the police, the Tribune reported. Two more were shot nearly an hour later with a man in his 50s ended up dead in the hospital.

Between 1:30- 5:30 p.m., three men in their 20s were shot separately around the city.

Over a dozen were shot early Sunday morning, with some suffering wounds in the stomach, arms or legs. The youngest wounded due to the gun violence was 11-years-old.

One of the shootings happened when two shooters fired at a block party. Several shooters in a separate incident walked up to a courtyard and began firing their guns.

Some people were injured in drive-by shootings. (RELATED: Five Found In Two Texas Shootings, Police Believe The Crimes Are Related)

The latest shooting occurred close to 8 p.m. on Sunday, where two women and one man were shot, according to ABC7.

The shootings came after the Chicago Police Department declared that the city had experienced a 10 percent drop in shootings and murders for the month of July.

The police plans to expand the department by roughly 1,000 officers to combat crime, ABC 7reported on Wednesday.

Update: The weekend shooting spree that started on Friday at 5 p.m. left 10 people dead and over 60 people injured.
