Chicago appeals for help after dozens shot over weekend

In the most recent shooting, three people were shot at 29 North Leclaire Ave.

At one point, 40 people were shot in the span of seven hours, according to a tally compiled by the Chicago Tribune, with bystanders as well as alleged gang members among the casualties.
