One year after one of Baltimore's most violent summers, this July opened with one of the lowest midyear homicide counts in three decades. Killings declined in the first half of 2014 to 97 people, compared with 115 during the first half of last year, when police worked to quell violence as 40 people were shot in a span of two weeks, including 20 over a single weekend. This year's pace puts it on track with a multiyear decline that ended in 2012. While Baltimore remains one of the most violent major U.S. cities - a toddler was killed early Tuesday - police officials have credited several initiatives with helping to reduce homicides, including more patrols in violent areas.
