 (KMOV) -- Some encouraging news for the St. Louis Police Department after News 4 learned that homicides are down in the city.

Officials with the police department told News 4 they have had 88 homicide calls so far this year.

That’s down from the 97 homicides the department had at the same time in 2012.

The news comes just a few weeks after St. Louis hosted an urban crime summit to come up with plans to reduce violent crime.
