    1,000 more people shot in Chicago compared with same time last year


    A shooting in East Garfield Park on Oct. 14, 2016, left one man dead and six others wounded. A thousand more people have been shot in Chicago this year compared with the same time last year, according to police and data compiled by the Tribune.

    A thousand more people have been shot in Chicago this year compared with the same time last year after a weekend that saw eight people killed and at least 40 wounded, according to police and data compiled by the Tribune.

    At least 3,475 people had been shot in the city as of shortly after midnight Monday compared with 2,441 people shot this time last year, an increase of 1,034, according to Tribune data. There have been at least 595 homicides this year compared with 409 this time last year, an increase of 186.


    The gun violence over the weekend was at levels usually seen in the summer when shootings typically spike.


    A single attack Friday night in East Garfield Park killed one man and left six others wounded, according to police. The people were standing together in the 3300 block of West Maypole Street when someone opened fire from a black vehicle, police said.


    An attack of that scale has not occurred in Chicago since 2014, when seven people -- including several young teens -- were shot in Lawndale.


    The Maypole shooting capped off an exceptionally deadly night on the West Side. Less than a half-hour before, two men were fatally shot in a South Austin drive-by, police said.

    About an hour before that, an 18-year-old man was killed in West Garfield Park


    But shootings occurred in nearly every corner of Chicago over the weekend, from a fatal attack in West Rogers Park to a shooting in Morgan Park near the southern border.


    A man was shot Sunday afternoon near the 95th Street Red Line CTA station, where he ran after being hit in the shoulder.


    Eight people were killed and at least 40 were wounded over the weekend, according to police and data compiled by the Tribune.

    Overall, six people were killed and 14 were wounded from Friday afternoon to Saturday morning; from Saturday morning to Sunday morning, one person was killed and 17 were wounded; and from Sunday to just past midnight Monday, one person was killed and at least nine others were wounded.

    In addition, a man was shot by police officers responding to a robbery at a gas station in West Humboldt Park on Sunday night, police said. He was shot in the leg and taken to Stroger Hospital in serious condition.
