At least 43 people were shot — eight of them fatally — in gun violence across Chicago over the Labor Day holiday weekend.

Though the city saw its lowest number of murders and shootings in August since 2011, according to data from Chicago police, the number of fatal shootings over the holiday weekend doubled the total from last year’s Labor Day weekend, when four people were killed and 23 others were wounded in citywide shootings.

For details of the shootings go to Chicago Sun-Times.
