Black homicide is a topic that has received only limited attention, in general, but even less in terms of its spatial implications. This investigation, however, basically attempts to identify high homicide risk environments in a set of cities where the aggregate risk is known to be high. Both methods of evaluating risk and the spatial patterns of risk stability are the central focus of the study.
