Homicides in Chicago: A list of every victim
That works out to .92 homicides per day, and it is January when shootings are usually down. That works out to around 339 homicides this year if the pace continues. There appears to be a woman murdered last night but it isn't on the list yet. Of those murdered 9 were black and 4 were Hispanic.
