Detroit January homicide rate lowest since 2000

DETROIT (WKZO) -- The number of homicides in the City of Detroit in the month of January was the lowest total in 14 years.

Officials say there 14 murders reported and they credit the recent raids and other efforts to get criminals off the street.  While some thought the frigid weather may have played a part, Detroit Police officials say they looked at crime statistics dating back to 2001 and found some of the higher murder rates happened when it was extremely cold.

Investigators say most criminals don't care what the temperature is when they want to settle a score.
