Lights & Sirens reader Jacob R. inquired this week:


I am curious,



Could you post an update on the blog for Tacoma’s 2007 Murder count?



If possible could you find out Seattle’s 2007 count? It seems like they have had a lot this year.



Jacob, I can answer part of your question.


Tacoma police spokesman Mark Fulghum said Friday there have been eight homicides in the city so far this year. All but one are solved, Fulghum said.


The number of killings is tracking below last year’s pace, according to this story written by Stacey before she flew the coop on leave.


I didn’t get a chance to call Seattle PD today for its numbers. I’ll try next week if I remember.
