I’ve updated the crime map page to include the period 4/26 to 5/10/2009. Comparing the same period to last year it looks like this:
Robbery is down. Theft is down. Crimes with guns are up. After I get a few more weeks of these numbers we’ll take a look at the cumulative score.
On the other hand you have this from 6abc.com:
FRANKFORD – May 13, 2009 (WPVI) — Philadelphia police are searching for four gunmen who walked up to a house in the Frankford section of the city and sprayed it with bullets.
It happened about 2:45 Wednesday morning in the 5200 block of Hawthorne Street.
Not far from the other incident on Dyre Street a few weeks ago.
