Chicago Police say the end of April saw a modest reduction in shootings for the city of Chicago.
Year-to-date, shootings are down 13 percent. April was the second month in a row that shootings have decreased citywide.
Although there were 45 murders and 308 shooting victims, the district says there were 9 percent fewer victims compared to this time in 2016.
Police say it all adds up to its new predictive technology being used in some of the city's more troublesome districts.
