A 16-year-old boy was the youngest victim in a weekend of violence that left eight dead and 46 others injured in Chicago. The high school freshman was killed by a single gunshot wound to the head while  standing on his front porch on Saturday. NBC Chicago reports.

Family and friend gathered outside their home to mourn the loss of a 16-year-old who was shot in the head and died early Sunday.

Joseph Briggs, 16, was killed by a gunshot wound to the head while he was standing on his front porch on the 6100 block of South Rockwell Street, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.
