Shot in Chicago

Most of the people who get shot in Chicago
don’t die of their gunshot wounds.

Gunshot wounds are always painful,
usually almost immediately.
Incoming rounds puncture skin, tear into muscle,
rupture organs and even break bones.
They can blind, deafen, maim, disfigure, cripple for life.

As many as a dozen people
may be shot in Chicago on any given day.
