Baltimore Goes Ten Whole Days Without a Murder

In the longest streak without a homicide since 2015, Baltimore has gone ten days and counting without a single murder.

There were still five non-fatal shootings during that period, with three of them reported on Saturday, reports the Baltimore Sun.

The drop in murders coincided with a 72-hour “ceasefire” enacted by community leaders on Feb. 2. 

Erricka Bridgeford, who organized the Baltimore Ceasefire told the Sun she was thrilled with the news.

“I am losing my mind thrilled,” she said. She said she’d been staying up until midnight, to see if the city would make it another day without a killing. 

“It’s really exciting,” she said. “Baltimore deserves this boost of love.”

But she also reported her stepson had run from bullets the other day in West Baltimore. 

“I’m praying that nobody dead,” she said.

In March 2014, Baltimore went 17 days without a homicide. That month only seven killings were reported, the fewest since 1970, reports the Sun. 

In the first 12 days of 2018, there were 11 murders in Baltimore, followed by 15 more murders in the next two weeks.

The last person murdered in Baltimore was Jerrell Brice, 27, on Feb. 1. The case is unsolved. 

In 2017, Baltimore set a record for killings per capita, with 343 that year.
