A violent September in Chicago ended with more homicides than any other month this year and the second-most shootings, according to data kept by the Chicago Tribune’s breaking news desk. Though the summer months in Chicago have traditionally been the most violent, shootings last month decreased little from August and there were about 50 percent more shootings than September 2014.
Looking beyond 2012, last month was the city’s deadliest September since 2002, according to a Tribune analysis. For two consecutive weekends there were more than 50 people shot, the first time that has happened in the four years that the Tribune has been tracking shootings.
The charts below show shootings and homicides in Chicago since 2012. The data are compiled by Tribune reporters about shooting victims, and could be different from city data on shooting incidents.
