Today, headlines read "7 Dead, 30 Wounded in Weekend Violence".
Interesting to remember that the greatest number shot to death in a single calendar year during the heyday of the Kansas cattle towns was 5 and that number was achieved only once in Dodge and once in Ellsworth all other years were fewer. When I lived on the south side of Chicago (back of the yards) we had that many killed within a one block radius (5 different blocks N,S,E,W) though it did take all of a long hot summer.
