There were 13 homicides this week. That is 6 less than last week, but still just over the average of 11 per week so far this summer. The average age of the dead this week was 27. That aligns with the median age of those killed all summer long. This week was a busy one for me. I spent 4 days photographing and made it to 30+ sites. I had both good and bad experiences. One of the most memorable was when I talked to the cousin of 13-year-old Robert Freeman, who was there when the boy was shot.
