Nearly 100 people have been shot in Chicago in less than a week, pushing the number of shooting victims so far this year to more than 2,500 — about 800 more than this time last year, according to data kept by the Chicago Tribune.

Between last Friday afternoon and Thursday, at least 99 people were shot in the city, 24 of them fatally. At least nine people were killed on Monday alone, the deadliest day in Chicago in 13 years, according to Tribune data.

The number of shooting victims in Chicago stood at 2,514 Thursday. At this time last year, 1,725 people had been shot. The city has not seen this level of gun violence since the 1990s, a trend the Police Department has blamed on lax gun laws and feuding gang factions. Read more at the Chicago Tribune.

  1. Forget all, this is not important. What is truly important are the few unjustified shootings by Police of black Americans. Sure, the numbers will never reach the levels of black on black shootings, like we see in this article. But, who cares. Just ask Black Lives Matter, they’ll tell ya!

  2. Shh shh shh.
    The media paskened that if you bring that statistic up you are a racist! Romney and McCain knew that. That’s why they were so successful in their Presidential run.
