Chicago leads the nation in murders and young people under 25 are often the ones who die. Last year the windy city experienced 100 more murders than New York City, even though NYC has three times as many residents.

The Chicago Reporter, a publication that has been investigating race and poverty since 1972, just published an investigation that looks at the 21 leading communities for youth homicides in the city.
