Youth Homicides Surge in Baltimore
June 1, 2023 | Maryland
BALTIMORE – Some parents fear sending their children to school as Charm City faces a surge in youth homicides and shootings.
“The school-to-prison pipeline — or really the school-to-grave pipeline — is really real in Baltimore City,” Jovani Patterson, who has two young children, told Fox News.
Baltimore City Public Schools held a ceremony last week remembering the 19 students shot and killed within the past year. The youngest victim was 8 years old. The previous year, gunfire claimed the lives of 12 students.
