(FOX) Chicago police say they took 56 illegal guns off city streets between Friday and Sunday and 22 people were arrested.
The weekend before that, there were 53 weapons arrests. A police spokesman says more than half of those 53 arrested have already been released on bond.
Despite the efforts, gun violence across Chicago from 5 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday claimed the lives of several people, including a teen shot to death Saturday in Englewood.
In total, shootings within city limits over Father’s Day weekend left at least six people dead and 22 others wounded.
