Weekly Crime Summary July 5th – 12th

The past week has seen high temps and a few violent days which have culminated in several teens and young adults being shot and critically injured. Yesterday a middle schooler was shot three time while trying to protect his friend. In a separate incident  two teens were shot – one fatally – in the middle of the day.

Over the last seven days there have been five murders in the city among another 57 violent crimes.

Temps have remained high with three days above 90 degrees and the other four in the mid-80’s.

Do we have to wait for fall for violence to taper off?
