Murders this Week: 4
Murders this Year: 92

Baltimore City saw a lot of violence this past weekend-12 people were shot. Nine were not fatally wounded. Three died, though one of the homicides occurred early Monday morning so it will be included in next week's column.

Tuesday, June 15

12:44 a.m. Larry Griffin, a 25-year-old African-American man, died this week, nearly a month after he was shot. He was found lying on the ground in the 2900 block of Spellman Road in Cherry Hill on May 22 at 3 p.m. He had been shot in the leg and stomach and was taken to an area hospital. He died on June 15.

2:30 p.m. Derrick Pinkney, a 33-year-old African-American man, was shot in the legs and torso in the 700 block of North Fulton Avenue near Harriet Tubman Elementary School. He died at a local hospital at 2:55 p.m.

Saturday, June 19

9 p.m.
Marquell Turner, a 19-year-old African-American man, was found lying on his back in the 1900 block of North Washington Street south of Clifton Park. He had been shot several times and died less than an hour later at an area hospital. With Turner and Pinkney's murders, the Eastern and Western police districts are tied for the most homicides this year, despite being the two smallest districts in the city.

Sunday, June 20

9 a.m.
A man was shot in the chest in the 2500 block of Winchester Street in West Baltimore. He died at a local hospital at 9:32 a.m. Police are waiting until his family has been notified of his death to release his name.
