|"Building a New Chicago"|
From ABC Chicago:
Chicago crime numbers released early Thursday morning confirm August was the deadliest month of 2016 and saw the most murders of any August since 1996.Predictably, Chicago's police superintendent is blaming guns, rather than Chiraq's entrenched street gang culture for the carnage.
In the first eight months of 2016, the city tied the total number of murders that occurred in 2015, the Chicago Police Department said.
In August, 90 people were murdered, 384 shootings occurred and 472 people were victims of shootings - including two teens who were shot on Chicago's West Side Wednesday night.
