Chicago’s Shooting Problem will look at the ongoing issue of Chicago’s ongoing gun violence and high murder rate through the Northeastern University course Digital Storytelling in Journalism. This blog will be updated with stories on shootings that happen and the stories of those affected, as well as information on the statistics of these crimes across the bigger picture of the city as a whole.

This blog is run by Cook County native Ben Thompson, a fifth-year Northeastern University journalism student with previous writing experience at the Enterprise of Brockton, Mass., and the Christian Science Monitor in Boston.
