The last homes on the south side of the 3900 block of The Alameda in Northeast Baltimore are almost identical. They are split-level structures, built in 1957, with two bedrooms and one bath. They share similar narrow driveways, rolling front lawns - and grieving families. Both were homes to homicide victims and their families this year. In the yellow home to the left live relatives recovering from the loss of Terry Junior Davis, 48, a registered nurse shot in the head in his room in February.

Truc Thi Ly Nguyen was learning English and studying for her driver's license. Everyone drove in the United States, so the Vietnamese immigrant told others she wanted to, as well. She worked at T&T Nails, an East Baltimore salon across from a chicken shack and a tax shop. Manicures with color gel finishes sell for $20, according to a sign tacked to the wall near a Safe Streets poster admonishing people to "Stop shooting, start living. " On Monday, Nguyen was crouched at the foot basin of a man receiving a pedicure, when a man walked in, aimed a gun at the seated customer, exchanged words and fired repeatedly.

Six months after the seemingly random murder of a 12-year-old boy in East Baltimore, police had not been able to solve the case, and, a prosecutor said in court Tuesday, the investigation had "gone cold. " But then in December 2011, a defendant in a drug case told prosecutors he knew something about the killing. Antwan Mosley told them that the boy, Sean Johnson, was gunned down as members of the Black Guerrilla Family gang lashed out in revenge for an attack on of one of their own. "That was a key break in a tragic homicide," Assistant State's Attorney Kelly Madigan said.

A Cherry Hill crack dealer admitted in federal court Wednesday to killing two rivals as part of a long-running feud between two neighborhood drug crews. Davon Martin, 25, was a member of a group known as Little Spelman, which was locked in a bitter war between 2011 and 2012 with another group, called Up Da Hill. His guilty plea to racketeering conspiracy highlights the interwoven nature of violence in some city neighborhoods. "Many of the shootings and murders in Baltimore City result from disputes between rival drug gangs," said U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein.

In regard to the murder of two of Baltimore's young people ( "Motives sought in killings of city teens," April 19), do the motives, probably petty reasons, really matter when we already know most of the underlying causes of most such crimes? These causes have increased dramatically over the past five decades and, in no particular order, include: deterioration and downgrading of our Constitution, loss of core values, diminishment of the English language and failure to adhere to the Ten Commandments and other principles on which America was founded.
