A stark geographic divide in Chicago's homicide rate

Chicago's overall rise in killings hasn't been spread across the city, The New York Times reports. Most of the homicides -- which authorities told the Times are gang-against-gang shootings, happened mostly in neighborhoods west and south of the city's downtown. A map from the Times found that more than 80 percent of the city's homicides happened in only half of the city's police districts. The police district including the business district downtown reported no killings.
