Chicago homicides surge again in August
CHICAGO — Chicago is seeing a surge in the number of homicides in August after a July that saw that month's fewest killings in years.
The Chicago Tribune reports that the city had logged 38 homicides in August, as of Monday. That's three more than in all of August 2011. Police statistics show that Chicago recorded 22 homicides in the first 19 days of August last year.
This year's August homicides include six people killed Saturday, which police says tied Feb. 19 for the most homicides in a single day this year in Chicago.
