Police: 161 murders in 151 days in Chicago

Chicago Police reported nearly four dozen murders in May, and now average more than a killing a day so far this year.

The 46 May slayings are the most in any month this year, but the total is not out of the ordinary compared to recent Mays. Police reported 47 murders in May 2013, and 50 in May 2012. There were 40 killings during the month last year.

Chicago now has 161 murders for the year — the highest total through the first five months of the year since 2012, when 208 people were killed before June 1.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office, which tallies killings different, reported an even higher total: 166 homicides, including one person fatally shot by police and two people who died this year after being shot in previous years. Forensic pathologists will preform three more autopsies today on apparent gunshot victims.  More
