At least 40 people were shot over the weekend across Chicago, with seven of them slain, according to police logs.

The toll covers a period from 8:43 p.m. Friday–after violent storms hit the city–to 6:39 this morning.

On Sunday, Chicago Police Superintendent Jody Weis acknowledged a high number shootings over the weekend and attributed more than half of them to the work of gangs.

The total from overnight Sunday into this morning was at least 18, including a 1-year-old girl who suffered a graze wound and a 44-year-old man who was shot in the head and killed.
