CHICAGO -- This weekend, Chicago police got thousands of guns off the streets, but still, it was a deadly weekend.

As Gaynor Hall reports, at least four people were killed and more than two dozen were wounded in separate shootings across the city.

Tyquan Tyler was at a party with his older sister at 62nd & Rhodes. A fight broke out. Gunfire errupted.

Tyquan tried to run, but he was hit, taking his last breath on the sidewalk, at just 13 years old.

More than a dozen people were wounded in separate shootings across the city, including two boys, 14 and 15-years-old. They were playing basketbal in the 2400-block of E. 74th St.
