I was wondering about this the other day, seeing the news of murders in several other places around the state, but I didn't say anything because, one, I wasn't sure I was right and, two, I didn't want to jinx it:
Twelve days into the new year, the city has yet to record its first homicide, police reported this morning.What are the odds we can keep this up?
That compares to three homicides reported for the same period in 2007, Milwaukee police Capt. Timothy Burkee said. Overall, 105 people were homicide victims in 2007, two more than had been recorded the year before.
