Chicago's Fourth of July weekend death toll has climbed to 15 with the death of a man who was shot just before midnight Sunday.
The Cook County medical examiner's office says 25-year-old William Allen was pronounced dead shortly before 2:30 p.m. on Monday afternoon.
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.
