CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Cleveland’s homicide victims are skewing younger in 2019, and black males account for the lion’s share of the victims, statistics show. There have been 10 homicide cases involving children this year in Cleveland, compared to seven in 2018. Forty people under age 25 have been killed in 2019; the city has already exceeded the 28 killed in all of 2018, according to statistics from the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office. As of Saturday, nearly 87 percent of this year’s homicide victims -- 92 out of 106 -- were black and 77 percent are black males. In 2018, roughly 75 percent of homicide victims were black.
A homicide investigation is underway after a female victim was found shot to death in a vehicle Monday afternoon in Oklahoma City, police officials said.
According to Oklahoma City police, officers responded to a welfare check at an apartment complex near Northwest 19th Street and Meridian. They found a shooting victim inside a vehicle.
