In the last week there were two days in which more than one homicide were recorded. The city hasn't seen a calendar date with more than one homicide since mid-March, a RedEye analysis of preliminary police data found.
On Sunday, a 14-year-old boy was shot to death in the 2300 block of South Leavitt Street on the Lower West Side, police said. That same day, a 26-year-old man was stabbed to death in the 4000 block of South Wabash Avenue in Grand Boulevard, according to officials.
On April 4, shootings claimed a 22-year-old man in the 8000 block of South Manistee Avenue in South Chicago and a 33-year-old man in the 1400 block of West 80th Street in Auburn Gresham, officials said.
The last time Chicago saw more than one homicide in a day was March 16, when two men were killed in separate shootings, according to RedEye data. Ten January days saw more than one homicide, RedEye data shows.
Citywide, gunshot homicides were logged in the last week in Englewood and South Shore, RedEye found.
Seven homicides have been logged so far this month. Forty-one homicides were recorded in April 2012, RedEye determined.
