Chicago Police: We Know Who’s Most Likely To Be Shot

posted on May 25, 2016

It’s called the Strategic Subject List and it documents people who are most likely to either be shot soon or to shoot someone. Created by the Chicago Police Department, the list uses data such as number of arrests, shootings and gang member affiliations to assign a score to individuals. The higher the score, the greater the chances of being involved in a violent altercation.

In 2016 thus far, more than 70 percent of the people shot in Chicago were on the list. Also on the list: more than 80 percent of those arrested in connection with shootings. 

Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson estimates that about 1,400 residents are responsible for the majority of the violence among the city’s 2.7 million people, and all of them are on the list. Whether this strategic tactic can succeed in lowering the sky-high gun and gang violence in the Windy City remains to be seen.
