With nearly 100 people shot in Chicago in less than a week, could it be the most dangerous city in America?
More than 2,500 people have been shot in Chicago this year, which is a rise of 800 on this time last year. 99 of these were shot over the last week, including 24 fatalities, with 9 people being killed on Monday alone, making it the deadliest day in the city for 13 years.
Police have blamed the shootings on weak gun laws and continued feuds between local gangs.
This all makes us wonder, could Chicago now be the most dangerous city in America?
