WBEZ special report: What it's like to live among Chicago's shootings

The rate of shootings in Chicago is hard to get your brain around. But think of it this way: For more than a year now, there's been a person shot about every other hour.

That relentless violence has ended hundreds of lives and damaged thousands more. It's changing the life of the city.

WBEZ 91.5-FM is telling the stories of those affected - from the young shooters and victims, to law enforcement, to moms taking to the streets to find solutions.

That includes seeking out experts and investigating institutional issues to understand better the causes of gun violence and its effects.

You can find the entire Every Other Hour project at or on the WBEZ app.
