Two people in their 30s were shot to death in separate incidents in Chicago in the last week, a RedEye analysis of preliminary police data found.

In South Shore, a 36-year-old man was fatally shot Monday in the 2300 block of East 75th Street, police said. Five days earlier, a 39-year-old woman was shot to death in the 8800 block of South May Street in Auburn Gresham, according to officials.

People in their 30s compose 23 percent of the 52 homicide victims this year, as of Wednesday afternoon. These victims composed 21 percent of the 435 homicide victims in 2013, RedEye determined.

Meanwhile, a 19-year-old man was fatally shot Tuesday in the 1900 block of North Rockwell Street in Logan Square, police said.

Citywide, eight homicides have been logged so far this month. Seventeen homicides were recorded in March 2013, according to RedEye data.
