- A woman was fatally shot and at least nine other people, including a 16-year-old boy, have been wounded in separate shootings since Friday afternoon on the city's South and West sides, Chicago police said.
The woman, Shari Graham, 30, of the 7700 block of South Paulina Street, was pronounced dead at 10:31 p.m. Friday at Stroger Hospital of Cook County, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.
Graham is at least the 101st person to be killed in 2016 with the second month of the year not over yet, according to data kept by the Chicago Tribune.
And from HeyJackass, a hint of things to come:
- 1997 was the last time Chicago put up 100+ homicides in the first two months of the year, and that year wrapped up with 761. Nothing to see here folks…
With medical advances and the speed of notification via cell phone, we thing 761 is a high bar to shoot for (literally). However, we'll bet on at least 600.
