Chicago Shootings Spike Amid Anti-Police Protests

Alex Nester - September 1, 2020 4:10 PM

The number of shooting victims in Chicago increased by nearly 88 percent in August 2020 compared with August 2019, according to Chicago Police Department crime statistics released Tuesday.

In August, 503 people were shot and 63 were killed in Chicago, compared with 268 shooting victims and 49 fatalities in August 2019. While murders declined 45 percent from July—the city's deadliest month since 1992—and 35 percent from June, the city's year-to-date murder rate is 49 percent higher than 2019.
Your life is up to you.  Spirit provides the canvas, you do the painting.  There are three kinds of people: Those who make things happen; those who watch what happens;, and, those who wonder what happened.  Take charge of your life--or someone else will.
