The city of Chicago just set a record for 2016, though don't expect the mayor's office to issue a self-congratulatory press release about it. The Chicago Sun Times reports that as of 12:52am Thursday, the city has gone four days without a deadly shooting for the first time this year. Previously, Chicago's longest stretch in 2016 was back in April, when the city went 3 days, 9 hours, and 23 minutes in between fatal shootings.
The last shooting death in Chicago happened just before 1am Sunday when a 34-year-old man was shot during a fight. During the current four-day streak, there was one homicide—the fatal stabbing of a 58-year-old man Monday evening. There have been at least 691 gun-related homicides in Chicago this year. More than 4,200 people have been shot in Chicago in total this year, according to WGN. (Read more Chicago stories.)
