The Los Angeles Police Department said Sunday that there have been 300 homicides in the city so far in 2020, a number that had not been seen in more than a decade.
In an effort to stop the growing number of homicides, the department urged the public to report any useful information to Crimestoppers, a safe and anonymous way to report a crime.
“A number we haven’t seen in over a decade: 300 homicides in one year. Senseless violence and tragic loss of life, ”the LAPD tweeted. “Our people are doing everything they can to stop the violence, but we need your help. If you have any information, please report it. You can remain anonymous. http://lacrimestoppers.org “.
If an arrest is made in connection with the crime, the reporting party may collect a cash reward. “I’m heartbroken!!” LAPD Deputy Chief Emada Tingirides tweeted.
“It has been a tragic weekend in Los Angeles that includes the murder of a 17-year-old who was riding his motorcycle near his home. A weekend like this creates lasting trauma in communities. Praying for South Los Angeles. #We mustComeJuntos “.
The last time homicides exceeded 300 in the city was in 2009
