Mayor Catherine Pugh and other city officials took part in a crime walk Thursday in northwest Baltimore at the scene of the recent murder of a 64-year-old man. The walk was intended to encourage residents to provide information about crimes in their neighborhoods and part of an ongoing initiative of the Mayor’s violence-reduction initiative.
Last month, Mousa Jaber was shot at the One Stop Convenience Store on Garrison Boulevard and Duvall Avenue. Reports say he was standing outside the store when he was approached by 4 people dressed in dark clothes, hoodies and covered faces. Arrests have yet to be made.
Neighbors say that they have noticed an uptick in crime in that area in the last couple of years, due to the influx of drugs, gangs and loitering.
