Gun Crisis Reporting Project curtailing operations; will halt daily reporting

The sun sets over West Somerset Street in Kensington, during a six-hour gun violence outbreak last year which left two people dead and six more wounded. Photographs for the Gun Crisis Reporting Project by Joseph Kaczmarek.

After publishing every day for more than two and a half years — illuminating the epidemic of gun violence in Philadelphia and seeking solutions — the Gun Crisis Reporting Project will cease daily reporting this Friday, November 7th.

For now, we will continue gathering and analyzing data, participating in community events, and will continue to respond to crime scenes, memorials, and other events when possible. And we plan to keep producing and distributing our free monthly email newsletter.

Meanwhile, we have compiled all of our posts in the #GunCrisis Knowledge Base, which you can also find in the menu at the left of each page, except for previous incident reports, which you can find by searching the site.
