Baltimore FINALLY Experiences Homicide-Free Weekend

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The latest ceasefire weekend in Baltimore has ended with no homicides reported in the city in the last 72 hours.

Organizers are now using this momentum to try and curb the violent running rampant in the city.


With 341 homicides in 2017 — which dropped from 343 after a double shooting in December was reclassified as a justified act — and 26 already in the first five weeks of 2018, members of the Baltimore Ceasefire called for 72 hours with no homicides. All weekend long, leaders and the families impacted by the violence hit the streets to get the message out.

After two attempts last year in August and November, the third time has proven to be the charm.
