In just this year alone, in just the first month the shooting and murders were double that. In statistics released, the Chicago Police Department reported there were 51 homicides this January compared to 29 in January of last year. Also, the number of shooting incidents and total shooting victims more than doubled; there 242 shooting incidents compared to 119 such incidents recorded in January 2015, and 292 shooting victims including the 51 who died, compared to 136 in the same month last year.

With the department initiating a number of crime-fighting measures and spending millions of dollars on police overtime, the city saw the total fall closer to 400 than 500 in each of the next two years, and 2014 ended with the fewest homicides in decades. But last year the number of homicides and shooting incidents rose yet again, and the bloodshed has continued this year.
