With more than 50 days since the last homicide in the East End, a period including the entire month of January, this as-yet-murder-free 2017 marks one of the 3 quietest starts to a year in the last two decades.

In 2012, most remarkably, there was not a killing in the East End until April 14. The following year, the peace was broken with a fatal domestic stabbing on February 9.

Richmond has seen 9 homicides so far in 2017, and another shooting currently classified as a “death investigation”.
