Daily News: Needle Outpacing the Gun

Philadelphia Daily News contrasts homicides and drug fatalities.

Drug deaths are outpacing homicides in Philadelphia, even as the bodies piled up during one of the city's deadliest weekends with 19 shot - six of them fatally.

As of yesterday, city records show there were 266 drug deaths. This compares to 211 homicides, more than 80 percent of them committed with handguns.

And authorities expect both homicides and drug deaths to surpass last year's totals, when there were 488 drug deaths and 380 homicides.
