    50 People Shot, 15 Fatally, In Baltimore In A Week

    By Amy Kawata
    CBS 13

    It’s been a violent week in Baltimore. As of Monday morning, 50 people were shot and 15 of those victims died since last Sunday.

    New numbers released early Monday accounted for three additional shootings that happened overnight.

    At 11:03 p.m. Sunday officers were called to Federal Hill Park in the 300 block of Warren Avenue for a report of gunshots being heard in the area. When they arrived, they found 39-year-old Melvin Thompson with gunshot wounds to his body. He later died at the hospital.

    Officers were then called to the 700 block of Bartlett Avenue for a ShotSpotter alert around 12:14 a.m. Monday. There they found a shooting victim in the 2300 block of Homewood Avenue. The victim, 52 year-old Vincent McCoy, was found inside a car that was involved in a crash. He was taken to area hospital where he died from his injuries.

    Then around 3:35 a.m., officers were called to the 2000 block of Griffis Avenue for a report of a shooting. When officers arrived, they found an 18-year-old man with gunshot wounds to his body. The victim was taken to an area hospital for treatment.

    These are the latest shootings in a string of violence over the week.

    In northeast Baltimore, officers arrived to find two women suffering from gunshot wounds Saturday evening. A suspect surrendered moments later.

    Detectives arrested 24-year-old Dandre Woods-Bethel, now he is facing murder, assault and weapons charges.

    The victims, a 46-year-old and a 23-year-old, both died from their injuries.

    On Friday, a 14-year-old was shot in the Coldstream-Homestead Montebello community. The teen was pronounced dead at the hospital. Police found a gun on the victim.

    “It makes me sad,” said Mark Washington, with Coldstream-Homestead-Montebello Community Corp.

    Washington wrote a letter to the police asking for help.

    “Any loss of life is tragic, but the loss of a child to the violence of the streets of Baltimore is a call to our community to try and redouble and triple our efforts to do more,” he said.

    Others injured include a 26-year-old shot in his back, an 18-year-old shot in his stomach and a 25-year-old man with a gunshot wound to his leg.

    On Saturday morning in the 1700 block of West North Avenue, two more shooting victims — one man dead and a 30-year-old woman being treated at the hospital.

    The violence began during Labor Day weekend.

    Baltimore City’s police union tweeted again Monday saying the city is in crisis.

    “In the last 10 days there have been 19 homicides & 43 failed murders (shootings) in Baltimore. Also there have been many stabbings/cuttings,” the FOP tweeted. “There is no discernible crime plan for the daily violence and the BPD is making no progress in filling the 500 vacancies.”

    “The fact that it happens far too often in Baltimore City suggests that we as a community, as a city, are not doing enough,” Washington said.

    Police also said a 27-year-old man shot in the 1000 block of Beaumont Avenue died two days later from his injuries, which brought the fatality total to 15.

    Philadelphia’s homicide toll reaches 300 this year after weekend shooting

    By Joshua Rhett Miller
    New York Post

    The slaying of two men in Philadelphia over the weekend pushed the city’s homicide count to over 300 — the highest it’s been by the end of August in at least 13 years, police said.

    Statistics posted on the Philadelphia Police Department’s website early Monday show 301 homicide victims citywide through Sunday — or an increase of 33 percent from the same date in 2019, when a total of 356 people died of homicide by the end of the year.

    The figure, which has been largely driven by ongoing gun violence, is the highest homicide total Philadelphia has seen by the end of August since at least 2007, data shows.

    Philadelphia did not tally 300-plus homicides from 2013 through 2016, but surpassed that grim milestone in 2017 (315) and again in 2018, when 353 were killed citywide, statistics show.

    The spate of shootings has included more than 100 juvenile victims, WPVI reports. And in one weekend alone earlier this month, as many as 30 people were shot, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    “We’re tired of the killing in our community,” Kimberly Washington told WPVI during a march calling for peace last week.

    Seventeen people were shot throughout Philadelphia from Friday through Sunday, including two fatally, a police spokesman told The Post, adding that he did not immediately have any information regarding arrests in the incidents.

    One unidentified man was pronounced dead after cops responded to a street party in North Philadelphia, where gunfire broke out early Sunday. The occupants of a black Nissan Altima with Delaware plates were later taken into custody, but it’s unclear whether charges were filed, the Inquirer reports.

    Two men were also shot, including one fatally, less than two hours later in another section of North Philadelphia. Police had not identified either victim as of late Sunday and no arrests were announced by police in any of the weekend shootings, the Inquirer reports.

    Mayor Jim Kenney, meanwhile, acknowledged the city’s surging homicide total, saying city officials were “devastated by this solemn moment.”

    “One homicide is one too many so I share the public’s outrage that 300 Philadelphians’ lives have been cut tragically short this year,” Kenney said in a statement.

    “Our administration maintains a sense of urgency on this mounting public health crisis. This is personal. This is our home, and many of us know some of the victims and their families directly impacted by violence. All Philadelphians deserve to be — and feel — safe in our city.”

    Kenney said his administration is working to increase “evidence-based strategies” to cut down on gun violence while calling for increased control of illegal firearms at state and federal levels.

    “This can only happen when state and federal leaders develop the courage to shake the grip of the [National Rifle Association], and enact true reform that keeps guns out of the hands of people with a proven record of violence,” Kenney’s statement continued.

    CNN reported earlier this month that Philadelphia ranked second in the nation in the number of homicides this year, behind just Chicago, according to statistics presented by Philadelphia Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw to city council members during a hearing on gun violence.

    Philadelphia had 247 homicides as of July 26, while Chicago had tallied 433, or an increase of 52 percent from a year earlier. New York ranked third at the time with 227 homicides, CNN reported.
