Police: Chicago had no shootings in 24-hour period

Mayor, Supt. say efforts to put hundreds more officers on beat patrol paying off

Associated Press

CHICAGO — Chicago saw something this week it hasn't seen in nearly a year: A 24-hour period where there was not a single shooting or murder.

Police say the period of quiet happened Wednesday.

In recent months, Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy have been touting a decision to put hundreds more police officers on beat patrol. In press releases this week, both said it's paying off.

Emanuel had promised during his campaign for mayor that he would put more police officers on the street.

Police say there were a number of shootings on Thursday but no homicides.
