Baltimore police have arrested two men in connection with a killing that took place last year.
Darryl Burks Jr., 25, a medical technician whom friends called “Pee Wee,” was found shot to death in a burning vacant rowhouse in the 3000 block of Rayner Ave. in the Mosher neighborhood of West Baltimore in late November 2017.
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.
