However, the latest daily report indicates that homicides reported in the city so far in 2014 are now running slightly ahead of last year’s pace, as we recently noted. On Friday morning, the Philadelphia Police Crime Maps and Stats page reported that 163 people had been killed this year in Philadelphia, three more than on the same date in 2013.
