Allen was one of more than 50 people shot over the long holiday weekend. The killings continued Monday with the slayings of three people — the first two early Monday and the third on Monday night on Chicago’s South Side.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that the latest victim was a 19-year-old woman who was shot in the back by a gunman who rode up on a bicycle and opened fire.
