Another day, another homicide. It's a morbid but true narrative in Baltimore right now as the city just surpassed 300 homicides since the beginning of the year.
The stabbing death of a 27-year-old man and the shooting death of a 22-year-old man on Saturday accounted for the 300th and 301st homicides in the city.
Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis released a statement that reads in part: "This challenging moment shall pass if we reject blame and embrace the hope, dreams, and promise of a great American city. Baltimore will win again, 2015 will not define us."
