CHICAGO (STMW) – Four men were killed and at least 22 other people wounded in gun violence across the city since Friday night.But here's the really defining statement:
No one is in custody for any of the attacks as area detectives investigate.Since 2004. Chicago's homicides have leveled off at about 450/year, a rate of about 16.5/100k. Back in May, the CPD was touting a huge decrease in murders and shootings 'compared to the previous year' and 'lowest numbers since the 1960's'. The 'previous year', however, had seen a spike of over 500 murders and the weather this winter/spring had been cold, rainy and miserable. Now with the nice, pleasant summer we've had, the killing is back to the average w/ about 240 so far this year w/ no sign of it slowing.
Welcome to Chicago.
