Chicago has recorded nearly 800 criminal homicides just before the New Year’s Eve holiday, according to police, marking a small increase over last year and a more than 60% increase from 2019.

“We all know this has been a challenging year here in the city of Chicago,” said Chicago police Superintendent David Brown, speaking to reporters Thursday at a year-end news conference at the department’s South Side headquarters.
