The complaint filed in Cook County Circuit Court against the towns of Riverdale, Lyons and Lincolnwood said gunshops there, along with stores in Gary, Indiana, supply a fifth of guns seized by police at crime scenes in the city. With between 400-500 murders a year, almost all with guns, Chicago lags other big U.S. cities in bringing down homicides.
