    ADVANCE FOR USE FRIDAY, SEPT. 8, 2017 AND THEREAFTER-In this Oct. 19, 2016 photo, a boy rides a bicycle past "RIP" graffiti on a wall along West 3rd Street and North Broom in Wilmington, Del., an area where several shootings have occurred. In 2015, the CDC published what remains its only report about gun violence in a single American city, warning it was at "epidemic levels" and recommending a long list of steps for Wilmington and the state to follow. Despite early momentum, most of the CDC recommendations remain unfulfilled even as gun violence continues to plague the city and claim young lives. (Suchat Pederson/The Wilmington News-Journal via AP)Wilmington, Delaware, isn't Chicago or Los Angeles, Baltimore or Detroit. It is a city of less than 72,000 people known primarily as the birthplace of chemical giant DuPont and as a cozy home for big banks and Fortune 500 firms. But an Associated Press and USA TODAY Network analysis of Gun Violence Archive data reveals that Wilmington far and away leads the country in its rate of shootings among young people under 18. Of the 10 cities with the highest rates of teen shootings, most had populations of less than 250,000 people. Among them were Savannah, Ga.; Trenton, N.J.; Syracuse, N.Y., Fort Myers, Fla.; and Richmond, Va. Chicago was the lone large-population city high on the list.
