Homicide Quarterly Report

Our Third Quarterly Homicide Report is now online and ready for viewing. It's a very detailed statistical analysis of the 89 homicides we had in the first three quarters of this year - through Sept. 30. (We're at 104 homicides to date this year, compared to 122 this time last year).

The report contains statistics you would expect about things like gender and race of victims, but it has other information, too. Like that most murders this year have taken place on a Monday. Or that 75 percent of victims in 2009 have had a criminal record. It also includes detailed maps of aggravated assault hotspots and where homicides have taken place throughout the city.
