On Saturday, Chicago police Superintendent Jody Weis held a press conference warning area gang members to stop the violence, or the department would make their lives miserable. Unfortunately, in just 50 hours over the weekend, five people were fatally shot and at least 25 wounded throughout the city–and many incidents have been linked to gangs.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that three of the murders–and many of the shootings–happened on the city’s West Side, where the department is targeting area gangs.

The latest innocent victim of Chicago violence is Darrell McKinney. CBS 2 Chicago reports that 15-year-old McKinney was at a block party in the 900 block of North Harding Saturday at 7 p.m., when gunfire erupted. McKinney, “an exemplary student and athlete” at Orr High School, was shot in the chest as a gang member was reportedly chasing and shooting at someone else. He was pronounced dead at Stroger Hospital hours later.
