CHICAGO (AP) – Six people have been killed and at least 10 others wounded in shootings and other violence across Chicago over the long Memorial Day weekend.

Among the dead was a 17-year-old who was shot in the jaw Saturday night in the Washington Heights neighborhood. Officers also shot and killed a man after he lunged at them with a knife.

Police say the officers were responding to an emergency call from paramedics who were confronted by the man on Saturday night in the Englewood neighborhood.
