Detroit's murder rate drops 14-percent

DETROIT (WKZO) -- Detroit Police Chief James Craig says murders are down in the Motor City so far this year. Through the end of August, 189 homicides had been reported to the department. That figure is down 14-percent from last year, and Craig says if the trend holds, the city will have its fewest number of murders since 1967. He adds 70-percent of the homicide cases have been solved this year compared to just eleven-percent in 2013.
