Of the wounded, the oldest was 62 years of age and the youngest was 11. Four other people wounded, one of them critically, and taken to hospitals for treatment.
But officials say the spike in violence is at odds with the general trend in the city, where shootings are said to be decreasing.
President Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani unleashed on Chicago mayor and former Obama chief of staff Rahm Emanuel for a weekend of tragic violence that gripped the city after at least 34 people were shot over a 24-hour period.
"There is a shortage of values about what is right and what is wrong", Emanuel said. "What happened this weekend did not happen in every neighborhood in Chicago, but it is unacceptable to happen in any neighborhood in Chicago". "We have such a genocide in our community, it's driving me absolutely bonkers", said Pastor Reshorna Fitzpatrick of Stone Temple Baptist Church. The shooting has drawn reaction from around the country, including Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City Mayor and now a lawyer for President Donald Trump.
The former NY mayor also tweeted his support for Chicago mayoral candidate and former Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy, referring to him as "Jerry" and calling him a "policing genius". If the gangs have no fear of the police, then the rule of law has simply broken down. Giuliani falsely stated that there were "63 murders" in Chicago this weekend, despite the reports that 63 were wounded and 11 killed.
The mayor had no immediate comment on Giuliani's attacks.

Several people were standing on a sidewalk about 2:35 p.m.in the 1300 block of South Millard Avenue when two males walked up and started shooting, police said.
Nevertheless, Chicago's official murder count, at 310 killings before the weekend, was the highest in the country and far eclipsed those of America's two largest cities - NY and Los Angeles. Though the drop was significant, last year's total exceeded the combined number of killings in NY and Los Angeles, the two US cities bigger than Chicago.
