Philadelphia on pace for deadliest year in over a decade

Most of the victims have been shot, more than a dozen have been stabbed, and seven have died of blunt force trauma.

Eight juveniles, all under 18, have been killed at the hands of another.

Half of this year's homicides have been solved, according to police officials. 

The commissioner, who is out of town and unavailable for comment, has said she wants to see 65% or more of the city’s homicides cleared by next year.
