Once again, a dark horse district:
In the city’s first homicide of 2018, a 51-year-old man was shot and killed a little more than two hours into the New Year while driving on the Northwest Side.
The man was among 12 people shot Sunday and early Monday in attacks across Chicago, as city residents rang in the New Year amid sub-zero temperatures.
And the number of people shot is already in double digits.
The good news is, by pro-rating out the numbers, Chicago will be down to 365 homicides for the year which is a 50% reduction.
Shootings however, will jump to 4380, an increase of nearly 800.
See how playing with numbers is fun?
