Baltimore County ended 2011 with 30 homicides — a spike from the 20 killings in 2010. Still, police say, the homicide tally is one of the lowest in recent years and not a cause for alarm. Police spokeswoman Elise Armacost said 2010 was "an anomaly. " "That was a very low year. It's important to look at the circumstances behind each of these crimes. We're not seeing any increase in random crime. Almost all of these homicides involve people who knew each other," Armacost said.
