Last year yielded 2,988 shooting victims.
According to the Chicago Tribune, 3,871 shootings took place in Chicago from January 1, 2016, to November 14, 2016. That figure includes both fatalities and non-fatalities.
The number of fatalities year-to-date sits at 674, which means approximately one in every six shooting victims is a fatality. The number of fatalities for all of 2015 was 492.
Breitbart News previously reported that August 2016 was the deadliest August Chicago has witnessed in 20 years. ABC News reported “472 total shooting victims” and 90 fatalities for that month alone. August came on the heels of July 2016, which was the deadliest July the city had seen in a decade.
Things were so bad that by September 1, ABC News reported that there were “nearly 12 shooting victims” a day from January 1 through the end of August.
