Hogan Expected to Announce Initiatives to Fight Violent Crime in Baltimore

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan is expected Tuesday to announce a package of proposals aimed at curbing violent crime in Baltimore.

The governor has called a 2 p.m. news conference at his Baltimore office as the city is reeling from a surge in violence.


The number of homicides in Baltimore this year has soared above 300 for a third straight year. Carjackings have jumped by 32 percent since last year. The city is on pace to end 2017 with more than 1,000 shootings.
