Less than a week into the New Year, there appears to be no let-up in gun violence in Chicago.
On Thursday, 14 people were wounded in shootings around the city, the Chicago Tribune reported.
In terms of the number of people wounded, a shooting in West Garfield Park was the worst.
Four people, including two teenagers, were shot at the corner of Maypole and Kenneth Avenues at about 3 p.m. One victim remained in critical condition Friday.
Others were wounded in shootings at 50 W. 85th Street; the 3500 block of West Chicago; 51st and Wood; the 3600 block of West Lawrence; the 5500 block of South Martin Luther King Jr. Drive; the 5600 block of South Seeley; and the 500 block of North Monticello.
In 2011, Chicago murders were down except in the Englewood neighborhood.
The city logged 419 murders, down from 437 in 2010. Englewood saw a 40 percent increase to 56 people killed in 2011.
