It's the worst start to a year since 1999, when 136 people died in the first three months the year, according to the Chicago Tribune.
At that pace - an average of three killings every two days - Chicago would have 564 homicides by the end of the year. That would eclipse the 468 killings recorded in 2015 and 416 in 2014.
The following graphic footage shows a Chicago resident gunned down Thursday while live-streaming the entire event on Facebook, as he stood on a street corner. The man falls to the ground as the suspect stands over him continuing to fire shots.
This was one of nine shootings across the city on Thursday that left at least two people dead.
Cited by BuzzFeed, Chicago Police Officer Thomas Sweeny said that the shooting occurred just before 5:00 p.m. in the 5800 block of South Hoyne Avenue. A suspect approached the 31-year-old man, shot him multiple times, then fled in a vehicle, Sweeney said.
After the shooting stops, another man can be heard talking about taking the individual to a hospital as a woman wails in the background.
The New York Daily News reported the victim was in critical condition Thursday night and had sustained multiple gun shot wounds.
