Over 3,200 people were shot in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago January through November 2022.

WTTW reported a Chicago Police Department figure showing there were 3,258 shooting victims in Chicago during the first 11 months of 2022. That figure includes victims in fatal and non-fatal shootings.

If we isolate fatal shootings, 637 people were shot and killed January through November.

There were 208 shootings in Chicago during November alone, and 54 homicides, in a city where crime has taken a daily hold on the lives of residents and those who enforce the law alike.
