New data shows a decline in recent years in the number of incidents in which Chicago police fired their weapons.
The data was compiled and released by the Chicago Tribune, which submitted multiple requests for the information before eventually threatening to sue for its release.
The Tribune found that in 2010, 102 officers fired shots during 74 incidents. In 2015, both the number of officers and the number of incidents decreased by at least 40 percent.
