Condolences to the victim, family and friends of the man. How did 2018 end up vs. 2017 on the Boston murder rate? I know it was a near tie around Christmas with a week to go.

And 2 of the 2017 57 were murders that occurred in previous years but classified as murders in 2017, so basically a tie.

Better than when we were going into triple digits, but between that time and this time I recall a 29 murder year. Big numbers or small numbers, it stinks for the dead and those who love them.
