As City Surpasses 300 Homicides, Top Leaders Mosby, Davis, Pugh Discuss Crime Fight

As Baltimore surpassed 300 homicides for the second consecutive year, the city’s top prosecutor and police commissioner told a group of business leaders Wednesday that they are pushing crime-fighting strategies that they believe will reduce the carnage.

Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby called the city’s homicide rate “extremely disturbing, especially when we see the level of retaliatory violence that’s taking place in our city.”
