Philadelphia has suffered the highest rate of homicide per capita among America’s largest cities for many years. In 2013, more than 80 percent of the people killed in our city were shot to death.
The Gun Crisis Reporting Project is designed to illuminate the epidemic of homicide by gunfire in Philadelphia — and to present solutions.
But we need your help.
