CHICAGO – HeyJackass.com reports 319 shot on Chicago streets in June – down a whole five percent from 2018 numbers during the same month. Despite four killed just over the weekend, over 277 were shot and wounded, compared to 42 shot and killed during the same time frame. 

Those numbers bring the total number of Chicagoans shot and killed this year thus far up to 25 – among the 1257 shot thus far.

Sunday's Gay Pride Parade was cut short, officials report, when a rainstorm hit Chicago's parade route – but, there were still plenty of strange calls to Chicago PD, as CWB Chicago so meticulously recalls HERE. 

Despite all the police calls, these Chicago and Cook County officials were fully on display at the 50th Annual Gay Pride Parade – Photos by Mark Weyermuller.
