This is the 8th homicide in Annapolis this year. 2007 and 2008 were the deadliest years on record with each reporting 8 homicides. This location is also located in the Newtown 20 community which is managed by the Housing Authority of the City of Annapolis (HACA) which has been plagued with turnover both in terms of employees and Board members. The Board recently dismissed the newly hired Executive Director, Melvin Colbert. This marks the second homicide in the neighborhood this year. In addition, there was another non-fatal shooting.
