Baltimore shootings analysis
Baltimore Sun analysis
The Baltimore Sun conducted an analysis of Baltimore Police Department Part 1 Victim Based Crime Data posted on Open Baltimore on October 17, 2018. The report covers incidents between January 1, 2012, and October 13, 2018.
The analysis provided information for the October 18, 2018 Baltimore Sun story titled "Baltimore's last weekend without a shooting was the weekend Freddie Gray was arrested".
The Sun's findings and analysis are available in the "analysis" notebook in this repository,
