Baltimore is at 11 days and counting without a homicide.
“I am losing my mind thrilled,” said Baltimore Ceasefire organizer Erricka Bridgeford. For days, she said she’s been staying up until midnight, to see if the city has made it through another day without a killing.

It’s really exciting,” she said. “Baltimore deserves this boost of love.”
