Four homicides over the weekend and two more Monday morning pushed Chicago's homicide count so far this year to double the same period last year.
The city has recorded at least 95 homicides since the first of the year, compared to 47 last year, according to data kept by the Tribune. The city has also more than doubled the amount of people shot - about 420 this year compared to 193 last year.
