  'There's not a comparable year': Homicides are up 52% in Chicago amid COVID-19, with 95% involving people of color The nation's second-largest county has recorded more homicides this year than in all of 2019, the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said. Chicago accounts for most of the homicides in Cook County, with 565 of 677 deaths inside city limits. Many of the shootings happened in a handful of neighborhoods on the city's South and West sides.
