Twelve killings in Prince George's County this month have vaulted the county's homicide total this year over last year's tally.
. . .
After a spate of nine killings in one week in August, County Executive Jack B. Johnson called the pace of killings an "aberration" and said he was optimistic the homicide total would be less than last year's.
Since August, the homicide rate has accelerated. The majority of killings have occurred in neighborhoods along the border with the District, where homicide totals are headed toward a 20-year low.
