Chicago experienced its deadliest day in the city’s history as 18 people were gunned down in a 24 hours. 18 people died on May 31, while the city was ransacked by looters amid the George Floyd protests.
Gang bangers and other lawbreakers took to the streets armed with guns while police were distracted with the protests.
Among those killed were John Tiggs, (pictured) a father of three, who was gunned down inside a Metro PCS store while trying to pay his cellphone bill.
Angelo Bronson, 36, a father of two, was shot when a bullet fired from a passing car hit him in the chest. He was in town visiting family, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
College student Lazarra Daniels, 18, (pictured) was fatally shot around 10:51 p.m. Her body was found in the middle of a street.
“We’ve never seen anything like it, at all,” Max Kapustin, Crime Lab senior research director told the Chicago Sun-Times.
Kapustin added that “I don’t even know how to put it into context. It’s beyond anything that we’ve ever seen before.
