Five days, five murders

As I type this, Boston has had five murders since May 3 (three by gun, one by knife and one by unspecified blunt trauma to the head).

Also: Eight non-fatal shootings, two non-fatal stabbings, four armed robberies, one home invasion and one guy beat up by a gang that wanted his Nintendo. At least, according to the reports on BPDNews.

Note: The non-fatal numbers were updated with two shootings and a stabbing reported after I originally posted this item.
