Detective Donny Moses, with the Baltimore Police Department, has confirmed that as of Thursday morning, Baltimore City has reached 300 homicides so far this year.
Moses confirmed with WBAL News Radio 1090 and FM 101.5's Anne Kramer that the latest victims were a man and woman shot and killed at McHenry and Monroe streets in Southwest Baltimore. That happened around 3 a.m. Thursday.
Another man was killed on Wednesday night in the city on McElderry Street.
On Wednesday, a 17-year-old boy was shot in the head along the 2800 block of West Lanvale Street around 1:30 p.m. He died at Shock Trauma.
"Every homicide is a tragedy, no matter what number is assigned to it. My goal is zero homicides. The men and women of the Baltimore Police Department are doing everything they can to make Baltimore the city we all know it can be," said Police Commissioner Michael Harrison.
"But, as I made clear in my crime plan, we cannot do it alone, so I would once again ask my fellow Baltimore residents to help us in the fight against crime."
For all of 2018, there were 309 homicides and 342 in 2017.
