Thirty-four people were injured, five of whom died of their wounds, in Chicago during Memorial Day on Sunday night, the Chicago Tribune reported.

Two shooting incidents in University Village neighborhood saw several dead and others injured, as Anthony Guglielmi, a spokesman for the Chicago Police Department told the Chicago Tribune that “We do believe that the two shootings from 1 a.m. and 6 a.m. are connected.”

Guglielmi said officers had also made 41 arrests for gun offenses and had taken 112 guns off the streets between 6 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. Sunday as part of their Memorial Day weekend patrols.
