Chicago police shootings reviewed
(CHICAGO) The Chicago Tribune reviewed every shooting by a Chicago police officer, in a six year span.
There were 435 police shootings from 2010 through 2015.
The number of shootings actually declined in that span.
92 people were killed, and 170 were wounded.
Most of the shootings happened on the city’s south and west sides, on blocks that are dealing with crime and poverty.
About four out of every five people shot by police were African American males.
And about half of the officers involved in shootings are black or Latino.
The officer said the suspect reached for a gun, or pointed a gun at him, in about 60-percent of police shootings.
