Chiraq Ends July With More Than 400 Murders

Chicago has recorded more than 400 violent deaths this year. The Windy City is on pace to eclipse last year’s murder total of 781 homicides.

As of 11 p.m. Monday, the homicide total was 409, with 74 people killed in July, Chicago Sun Times reports. Last year, the city did not reach 400 murders until Aug. 1.

A majority of the killings occurred on the South Side and West Side of Chicago, mainly the Austin and Englewood neighborhoods.

Forbes released its annual list for America’s most dangerous cities in June. Forbes compiled stats for the homicide rate per 100,000 residents over the last five years.

Chicago was ranked number 16 on the list. In 2016, Chicago recorded its worst record for homicides in nearly two decades with 762 murders, 3,550 shooting incidents and 4,331 shooting victims, Forbes reports.

G Herbo posted the list onto his IG account, saying there are war zones everywhere.

Herb wrote in his caption, “It’s a war zone out here!! Not just in my city everywhere!! @flyniggasdoflythings @nenocalvin @realelkidd My n***a inna N.O stay on yo Q’s & Yo P’s that’s like my third home I go 2 da NO & get love!! In a city full of all that hate don’t ask me how I do it.”
