Homicide Spike Baltimore

In this May 24, 2015, file photo, police pick up a pair of shoes after a double shooting in Baltimore. Residents in West Baltimore say they’ve been victims of excessive policing in this neighborhood where street crime and drug-dealing have been endemic. Now, one month after riots erupted in the wake of the death of Freddie Gray in police custody, homicides and shootings are up and those same residents feel like they’ve been abandoned and left to fend for themselves.
