Violent Crime in Charlotte


Recommended Posts

I think the CIAA will be back to Charlotte if this stays up  Baltimore has over 50 murders this year already.  348 last year for a city of 600,000 in 2019.

FYI Charlotte has had 12 so far in 2020 which seems down from last year but still too high in  my book.

Sad thing is the count will typically start to rise when warmer weather rolls in.  Pretty sure I read somewhere that summer is usually when the tally starts ticking up a little faster. 

unfortunately that is correct however I predict at least one summer week this city will be lockdown late August.

Well we've managed to have 5 homicides in a week of social distancing to put us north of 20 so far this year and back on track to hit 100+ by year end. 

With the job losses mounting and schools out, I expect this to rise. I would not be surprised to see looting if this virus situation escalates, which it likely will. 

 

Prepare your households. Bars on Windows might be wise to save your assets along with other measures. Better to be safe than sorry.

Mass shooting in Charlotte last night around 12:30AM with 9 shot and 2 dead so far. 5 additional people were hit by cars. There is evidence of multiple shooters involved with no arrests. 5 people are in critical condition. 

Absolutely tragic and I hope the injured pull through. https://www.wbtv.com/2020/06/22/two-dead-hurt-after-shooting-block-party-north-charlotte/

Justin from QC Nerve out again on the scene of this last night.  Twitter thread below.

Also if you just watched the Vice News story shared in another thread unfortunately this happened right off Catherine Simmons Ave which was highlighted about it's violent past

A third person confirmed dead in the mass shooting last night. A fourth may be dead per Justin at QC Nerve, pending official confirmation. 

There were two other homicides in the last 24 hours in University and SE Charlotte marking 5 - 6 people killed today. Awful day.

from twitter about city council meeting about the shootout on Beatties Ford Rd.  emphasis mine

""Jennings: CMPD still saying there are 3 deceased and 2 in critical condition. Others non-life threatening injuries. Says 9 people shot total, no suspect information despite 300 to 400 people there. Only 1 witness has come forward with any info, he says.""

3 more homicides within 24 hours in Charlotte, including a 14 year old boy at a strip mall on Beatties Ford. We are at 51 deaths so far this year versus 52 at the same point last year, putting us on track for 100+ homicides again in 2020. The gun violence occurring is absolutely horrible the last couple weeks in our city.

Charlotte's spike in homicides this year is certainly not unique:

Quote

Of the large cities surveyed, 70 percent had an increase in homicides, 21 percent had a decrease, and nine percent had no change. Including all 223 agencies surveyed, 58 percent saw a rise in homicide, 20 percent had decreases, and 22 percent — mostly smaller agencies — had no change.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2020/11/21/murder-rises-in-pandemic/

 

Charlotte is up by 20.5% (mean was 35.7%)

What is upsetting to me is that within the span of a week, two law enforcement officers lives have been taken.  Mt. Holly and in Concord, are shaken by these senseless acts of violence.  My heart goes out to their families, co-workers and friends that have lost someone so young.
