Bloody Baltimore,, Homicides At A 353 per year rate

The Baltimore sun reports 235 homicides in the first 8 months of 2017, a rate that will result in 353 homicides this year if that rate does not increase.

Since the last four months of the year tend to be more vioolent than the first eight, the question once again becomes will Baltimore exceed the homicide a day rate of 365 homicides for the year.

While it looks like a coin toss to me, 380 homicides is not out of the question.
