August In Gun-Controlled Chicago: 472 Shot, 90 Killed

According to ABC News, this puts Chicago on track to tie–if not surpass–some high water marks for murder that the city hoped it would never see again. For example, the homicide rate “topped 600 in 2003”–a high point which is easily within reach this year. And the 513 killed in 2008 are almost certainly to be eclipsed by the end of 2016.
