The Chicago Police Department over the weekend recorded 26 shooting victims, including five who have been pronounced dead.

Police recorded 21 total weekend shooting incidents between Friday, April 16, at 6 p.m. and Sunday, April 18, at 11:59 p.m.

Shooting victims include a 7-year-old girl named Jaslyn Adams who was shot to death Sunday at a McDonald’s drive-thru with her 29-year-old father, Jontae Adams, who has been hospitalized with multiple gunshot wounds.

“I am heartbroken and angered that a 7-year-old child was killed this afternoon on Chicago’s West Side,” Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said in a Sunday tweet. “This unthinkable act of violence has no place here. The epidemic of gun violence cutting our children’s lives short cannot go on.”

In another Sunday drive-thru shooting, a 33-year-old man was shot in the left leg while a 19-year-old woman was shot in the abdomen at Popeye’s. Both victims have been hospitalized, and the woman remains in critical condition, according to Fox 32 Chicago.

A 17-year-old girl is in fair condition after two males exited a vehicle and shot her in the head Sunday while she was riding in a separate vehicle on the Lower West Side, ABC 7 Chicago reported.
