Fifteen people were shot, two fatally, on Tuesday in Democrat-controlled Chicago.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported that the shootings started around 12:45 a.m. Tuesday and resulted in the death of a 27-year-old man.

The day’s second homicide occurred less than an hour later near “the 1600 block of South Loomis Street.” An 18-year-old was killed in that shooting.

One of the 13 non-fatal shooting victims was a 16-year-old boy on a bicycle in Garfield Park. He was shot around 9:40 p.m. Tuesday “when someone pulled up in a gray SUV and unleashed gunfire.”

Breitbart News reported at least 34 were shot, 6 fatally, the weekend of September 6-8, 2019. At least 41 were shot, 7 fatally, during Labor Day weekend in Chicago.

Breitbart News also reported at least 29 were shot, 6 fatally, the weekend of August 23

Trump Presidency homicides in Chicago

2017 - 685
> - 95
2018 - 590

2019 - 362 (so far) divided by 254 = 1.452 per day or 529 for the year

If my extrapolations (for 2019 are correct) the difference between 2017 and 2019 is - 156

However, that's only for a two year period, but not a bad start.

If Republicans are the problem why did the number of homicides going down in one year and possibly the next year ?
