Alonzo Smith was walking Thursday in the 1600 block of Darley Ave. when he spotted his 92-year-old neighbor Janie Frieson standing in her doorway. "You OK?" Smith asked. Frieson smiled and assured him she was fine, and Smith walked on to his Northeast Baltimore home a few doors down. The brief exchange captured a sense of community that residents say endures on the block of mostly well-kept - and inhabited - brick rowhouses in the Darley Park neighborhood, even as the wider area grapples with the highest homicide rate in all of Baltimore.

The annual number of killings in Baltimore has fallen below 200 for the first time in more than three decades, a symbolic threshold that seemed elusive for a crime-weary city just four years ago. As a new year begins, city officials say the decline is a major step toward revival efforts. Soaring crime and decades of abandonment made the city synonymous with urban violence in America, fictionalized on television crime dramas and leading to nicknames like "Bodymore, Murderland. " Though Baltimore is still among the most deadly cities per capita, as murder has declined more steeply across the country, the drop extends an overall downward trend in gun violence here since 2007, the year Police Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III took office.

Residents from neighborhoods split into different election districts under Mayor Martin O'Malley's redistricting plan asked City Council members last night to help keep their communities together. At a public forum before the council's redistricting committee, about 20 residents from Original Northwood, Harlem Park, Darley Park and Washington Village asked the council to reject the mayor's map and draft one that provides them with a single council representative, not two. "Two council representatives dilute our voice," said Frank Gorman, of the Original Northwood Association.

A vigil is being planned for this afternoon to remember 13-year-old Monae Turnage, who police say was accidentally shot and killed by one of her classmates while playing a with a rifle inside a rowhouse on Saturday night. Tentative plans include a gathering about 4 or 4:30 p.m. outside Monae's school, William C. March Middle, at 2050 North Wolfe St. The mourners will then march to the girl's house a few blocks away in the 1700 block of Sinclair Lane. That route roughly follows the path that Monae took when she left her house Saturday night to walk to an adjoining neighborhood, Darley Park, to meet a friend to go roller skating.

The Darley Park neighborhood in Northeast Baltimore, where 13-year-old Monae Turnage's body was found Sunday evening under plastic bags behind a house on Cliftview Avenue, has long had issues with violent crime.

It's also around the corner from where police Detective Michael Rice was shot in March 2011, near a strip of shops along Harford Road, and where another detective, Michael J. Cowdery Jr., was shot and killed in March 2001 when he interrupted a drug deal.
