While this map does not address other crimes like stabbings, robberies, batteries, or the number of times gunshots are fired in a particular neighborhood; it does, however, claim to track non-fatal and fatal shootings.
Some of the numbers may surprise you.
From December 31, 2011, to the present, there have been three fatal shootings and two non-fatal shootings in the city's Lake View neighborhood, according to the shootings and homicides map.
In Uptown, during that same time period, there were two gun-related fatalities and five non-fatal shootings.
The numbers are much worse for Rogers Park... where four people were shot to death and eleven people were struck by gunfire, since the beginning of the year.
Meanwhile, several South Side neighborhoods reported far fewer incidents of non-fatal and fatal shootings.
Avalon Park, a predominately black neighborhood bordered by East 76th Street to the north, East 87th Street to the south, the Metra South Shore Line to the east, and S. South Chicago Avenue to west, saw four non-fatal shootings since December 31, 2011... no fatal shootings were reported during this time period.
Similarly, in the city's Burnside community -- sandwiched between East 87th Street to the north, East 95th Street to the south, the Metra South Shore Line to the east, and South Stony Island to the west -- one fatal shooting and one person struck by gunfire was reported.
West of the Burnside community, sits Calumet Heights... one of the safest communities in Chicago, when it comes to shootings, according to the shootings and homicide map.
Between December 31, 2011, to the present, there have been two non-fatal shootings and not a single gun-related death.
