Homicide stats in Canadian Cities
 
Another year, another tally.

And unfortunately Calgary may be off to a bad start, not confirmed yet as a homicide but there was suspicious death early this morning.

Looks like Metro Winnipeg logged the first kill of 2008.

Maybe 2009 will be a murder free year like Quebec City, but i doubt it.

There were a few shootings in the last two nights as well.

Shot Fired at Elgin Ave. Store
DEC 31 2007 11:40 PM


Police are still looking for suspects who allegedly shot at a convenience store on Elgin Avenue in Winnipeg.
Police went to the store in the 14-hundred block of Elgin shortly before 11 A-M Monday.

Earlier, a pair of robbers, one armed with a gun, had entered the store. The owner ran to the back, closed the door, and hit the alarm.

The robbers ran outside and allegedly fired at least one bullet at the store before taking off. No one was hurt.

Police continue to investigate

Police search for shooter
DEC 30 2007 11:30 AM

Winnipeg police continue to search for a male wanted in connection with a shooting on College Avenue.

Three males were in the 500 block of College early Saturday when they came across a male and female arguing. The three intervened, stopping the argument when the male walked away.

A short time later, a car came down the street and shots were fired at the three males. A 13 year old youth was hit in the upper body. He was treated in hospital and released.

Police describe the suspect male as being in his twenties. He was wearing a white hoodie, baseball cap and jeans. He was riding on a small, newer model blue four door car.

Police continue their investigation.
Ken Klassen reporting.

Does anybody really expect the murder rate for Canadian Cities to be any different than it was last year?

I imagine it will pretty much be the same.

Toronto 70 82 2,503,281

Montreal 42 39 1,620,693

Edmonton 36 33 730,372

Calgary 44 38 988,193

Winnipeg 22 26 633,451

Ottawa 16 14 812,129

Saskatoon 9 6 202,340

Windsor 5 3 216,473

Quebec City 7 0 491,142

Regina 8 5 179,246

Those statistics are way off, as was pointed out in the other article that had them.

Overall the rate will probably be about the same though year over year.

Winnipeg police are investigating the first homicide of 2008.

Constable Jacqueline Chaput tells CJOB the call came in at 2:40 a.m. (wed) regarding a shooting at a residence in the 600 block of Magnus Street between Mackenzie and Parr Streets.
She says the woman who was shot was conveyed to hospital with life threatening injuries, but succumbed to her wounds.
Chaput says the shooting does not appear to be a domestic matter, partly because the woman was inside the home when she was shot while the shooter was outside the house.
The woman's age has not been released, and police say there have been no arrests yet or information available on any suspects.
The homicide unit is investigating a number of witnesses. CJOB Colleen Bready reporting.

Tony Jan 2, 2008 6:34 PM

Toronto has one as well, 14 y-o female, Police caught the two little pricks who did it too.

Really? Wow..

Years ago it seemed that only a small handful of murders occured by gun. Now it seems like the preferred weapon of choice in Winnipeg.

A 14-year-old girl who died after being stabbed on New Year's Day is the daughter of two Toronto police officers, CTV News has confirmed.

Police have not identified the victim, who died after being attacked on Tuesday night. She is the city's first murder of the year.

On Wednesday, police arrested a 17-year-old boy and a 15-year-old girl and charged them with first-degree murder.

Damn :(

Toronto gets off to an early start as usual. I'm betting Hamilton will have it's first at some point this month as well, though it'll probably still be a quiet year.

vid Jan 3, 2008 12:11 PM

Thunder Bay will have one by the end of the month. 2006 and 2007 were both like that. A murder in late January then another in November or December.

Quebec City got his first murder since OCT 2006.
