Sixteen people were shot in an 11-hour period Monday, including two along a Safe Passage route in the West Englewood neighborhood, according to authorities.

The shootings - from Cragin on the Northwest Side to Roseland on the Far South Side - left five dead. Those shot ranged in age from 16 to 56. Several survivors were left in critical condition.

The burst of shootings came after no one was reported shot in the city through most of the day Sunday into early Monday

[…]

At least 228 people have been shot in January, 37 of them fatally.

In the first ten days of the New Year, more than 100 people were shot in Chicago. Given this recent string of shootings, we shouldn’t expect them to slow down any time soon.
