rganizers are urging a three-day period of peace during the fourth Baltimore Ceasefire event of the year this weekend.

Branded with the slogan, “Nobody kill anybody,” the quarterly call for a weekend without homicides returns Nov. 2-4.

This Ceasefire comes as the city has seen 259 homicides in 2018, according to the Baltimore Police Department. The count was previously higher, but police reclassified two killings, and a third victim who was originally listed as dead was not actually killed.

In the last three months, there have been 96 killings, according to data collected by The Baltimore Sun.
