CHICAGO — Police in Chicago have released the names of the victims killed in a bloody weekend that’s left activists and officials calling for change. Twelve people were killed and 54 were wounded in shootings across four neighborhoods on the city’s south and west sides, according to CBS Chicago. The violence peaked early Sunday, including one shooting on the city’s South Side that wounded eight people.

Police on Monday attributed the dozens of shootings to gangs, the illegal flow of guns and sweltering August heat that drew more people outside. No arrests had been made in the wake of the violence.

The article goes on to state the following:
