Tracking Chicago homicide victimsIn Chicago, 293 people have been killed this year. That is 33 fewer than 2018.
List of mass shootings in the United States in 2019 - WikipediaAs of August 4, 2019, 252 mass shootings have occurred in 2019 that fit the inclusion criteria of this article, resulting in 1,032 people being shot. Of those people, 281 have died.
It was hard to even find a nation wide state of black homicides. But, oh boy the mass shooting involving scores of outside inner city violence was all over the place. Racism can sometimes hide in plain site.
Note, that is 293 in Chicago alone, and that state is down from last year.
Also worth nothing is the methodology used to identify mass shooting. FBI has it as only 17 mass shootings. So, I am not clear where we come up with this 252 number on wiki
