Chicago Thanksgiving weekend: 8 killed, 62 wounded. 4000 wounded this year.

Chicago saw one its most violent Thanksgiving holidays in years, with eight people killed and 62 others wounded between late Wednesday afternoon and early Monday.
The toll towers over the number of shootings in the previous two Thanksgiving holiday weekends, according to data kept by the Tribune.
In 2014, five people were killed, including a woman inside the Nordstrom's store on Michigan Avenue, and 14 others were wounded. Last year, eight people were killed, including a 16-year-old boy, and 20 were wounded, the data show.
This year's tally does not include the three people shot dead by Chicago police over the holiday period.
