Updated Shooting Stats

The Convention Center Community Association has upload new maps
of shots fired and calls for drug activity to its blog.

In case you missed it, the Convention Center Community Association has stats for sounds of gunshots and drug calls for the year to date on its blog. The accompanying maps show where the gunfire is concentrated, although it does not indicate the precise location as noted on my earlier posting.

According to the statistics, there is less gunfire in Ward 2 than any other Ward, by far, except for Ward 3. Gunfire in Ward 2 is 1/3 of that found in Wards 1, 4, and 6, 1/2 of that experienced in Ward 5, and 1/6 of Wards 7 and 8 (areas that may have more gunfire than Afghanistan). The difference is that gunfire in Ward 2 is heavily (perhaps, exclusively) concentrated in a single part of the Ward -- the northeast corner, i.e. Shaw.

UPDATE: Another murder over the weekend.
