After third year of rampant violence, Baltimore searches wearily for answers

More than 1,000 people have been killed in Baltimore in the last three years. More than 1,000 people were shot in 2017 alone. As another historic year of violence blurs into history, and the page is turned to 2018, this is the reality: Baltimore is not just losing blood, it is hemorrhaging it.

Keith Vinson, 34, of the 300 block of Franklintown Road, was arrested by the homicide operations team Dec. 1 and charged with being an accessory after the fact to murder.

Aaron Gadson, 28, of the 5000 block of Crenshaw Ave., was arrested by members of the warrant apprehension task team Dec. 4 and charged with first-degree murder.

Both are being held at Central Booking without bail. No lawyer was listed for either in online court records.
