Baltimore police have identified eight recent homicide victims.
State’s attorney Marilyn Mosby said in a statement Wednesday that two of the victims, Taylor Davis and Therone L. Jones, had participated in programs with her office.
Davis was involved in a crime-prevention program called Project17, Mosby said, while Jones had been a part of an initiative called “Aim to B’More,” an alternative to incarceration for low-level drug offenders.
“It was apparent from my interactions with both of these young people that their futures were bright and full of promise,” Mosby said. She condemned their killings and urged people to “tackle the senseless violence that claims so many precious lives in Baltimore.”
