Chicago Shootings 2019: Every Reported Shooting in the Windy City So Far

Chicago and its reputed gun violence is a favorite topic of President Donald Trump's. While the Midwestern city has seen a continued decline in gun violence in the past few years, that has not stopped the president from evoking the persistence of gun violence in the Windy City.

In a speech at the International Association of Chiefs of Police in October 2018, Trump said there was "no reason" for the crime occurring in Chicago. The president said he directed his attorney general to "help straighten out the terrible shooting wave" in the city, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Months earlier, Trump said that killings in Chicago were at "a record pace" and that Mayor Rahm Emanuel was not allowing Chicago police to do their jobs.

"Tough police work, which Chicago will not allow, would bring things back to order fast…the killings must stop!" the president tweeted on May 26, 2018.

But data from the Chicago Police Department shows that the number of shootings have been decreasing. Citywide, the number of shootings have dropped by 14 percent from 2017 to 2018.

Those trends have continued into the new year. On March 1, Chicago Police announced that it had documented 214 shootings within city limits in the first two months of the year. That figure represents a 24 percent decline in shootings compared with the same time period in 2018. Police said that shooting incidents declined 7 percent in February 2019 compared with February 2018, and five police districts reported no shootings that month.

Murders and overall crime in Chicago have also decreased, police said. Meanwhile, gun arrests and seizures have risen—1,600 illegal guns were confiscated in 2019.

Despite a marked decline in shootings, Chicago continues to rank high among major U.S. cities when it comes to gun violence. Newsweek has compiled daily reports of all the shootings in Chicago in 2019.
