12/31/2012 8:09 PM by

CBS 6 confirms a shooting has left a man dead at 29th and Newbourne Streets, a couple of blocks away from Creighton Court and in between Fairfield and Nine Mile Roads.

This is the 9th killing in the East End in 2012, and the 42nd in the city this year. The 9 homicides (down from 13 in 2011) match the count from 2009, the lowest since at least 1998 and more likely since at least the early 1960s. Four of the 9 killings in the East End this year came in a 2-week span in September.
