Amid the horror over mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas over the weekend, violence in another American city largely went unnoticed in the national news media.
At least seven people were killed and 46 wounded in mass shootings across Chicago over the weekend, according to authorities.
There were two mass shootings in one night in Chicago's Lawndale neighborhood on the West Side. The casualties overran a local hospital to such a degree that it reportedly stopped accepting new patients for a time.
