According to CNN, investigators believe the shooting was gang-related. Police say they don’t have anyone in custody.

 

The attack happened just days after the FBI released statistics that name Chicago as the nation’s murder capital with 500 murders in 2012 — 81 more than New York City had.

 

But The New York Times reports the city has been making progress in decreasing violent crime in recent years.
