Feds Embed With Baltimore Homicide Squad

Ten federal agents are set to join the Baltimore homicide unit after the city had one of its deadliest months in a decade. So far this year, 191 people have been murdered—45 of them in July. There are already 20 agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms on the ground as well as a full-time FBI analyst. “We’re not sitting still in Baltimore,” said Interim Police Commissioner Kevin Davis. “This is not something we are satisfied with happening to us as a city. We’re punching back, and we’re going to continue to punch back as creatively and innovatively as we can.”
