Chicago is a city that is known for its violent crime.
It recently went one whole week without a shooting death, breaking a 4-year record in the process.
Sadly, the record was short-lived as a shooting death was reported on Monday night when a 30-year-old man was shot in the neck and later died at the hospital.
Conservative Tribune reports:
Prior to Monday night, the city’s last fatal shooting had been reported on February 26 when James Morris was also shot while sitting in a vehicle. The 26-year-old later died at a hospital, according to police.
In the meantime, 43 more people were shot, none of them fatally.
The record-breaking streak came on the heels of another grim, gun-related record set in Chicago not too long ago. In 2016, nearly 800 homicides were reported, the most in over two decades.
So far this year, there have been 392 shooting incidents since February 26. Of those shootings, 98 were fatal. The city has also recorded 104 homicides so far this year.
Chicago has already pushed forward with anti-gun laws, making it more difficult for innocent citizens to protect themselves from armed thugs.
