Fifty-eight people die from gun violence every 28 days in Chicago compared to the same number who passed away after the Las Vegas shooting on Sunday, according to a graphic created by The New York Times.

The NYT used a graphic Friday to show the comparison. A white gunman opened fire in a crowd of concertgoers in Las Vegas and killed the same number of people who die from gun violence every month in Chicago.

Using data from the Gun Violence Archive, the news outlet found that over the same 28-day time span, St. Louis saw the same amount of people die in a 70-day period.
