More than 40 people were shot in Chicago over the holiday weekend, and at least 10 of them were killed, NBCChicago.com reported.

The latest shooting happened around 1:30 a.m. in Albany Park, a Chicago neighborhood, where police said a man was shot in the face. It followed dozens of shootings across the city since Friday.

“It’s been a real rough weekend, a lot of gun violence,” community activist Pastor Corey Brooks told ABC News.

“Nobody can be comfortable or sanguine about it and nobody should,” he said. “If you’re a resident of the city, and a child is shot in Little Village, that’s a child in the city of Chicago. It’s not in another part of the city.”

This weekend’s most violent period was an hour-and-a-half stretch early Sunday morning when 13 people were shot.
