INTRODUCTION :

Scroll down this page to see brief descriptions of instances of some lethal (or potentially lethal) crimes committed in 2018 on 'the Peninsula' --- the peninsula between the James and York rivers in southern Virginia --- a metropolitan area including the cities of Hampton and Newport News --- part of the 'Hampton Roads' area of Virginia.

Most of these crime instances were recorded from a 'Local News - Briefs' section of the Daily Press newspaper.

The eventual purpose of this page is to provide a map of the Peninsula area that includes markers to show the locations of violent crimes (or potentially violent crimes) --- for a period of about a year.

For now, each crime is shown on a map with a single marker for that crime.

Eventually, the plan is to provide a large map showing markers (plural) for all the listed crimes for the year.


The emphasis is on shootings that may or may not have resulted in a death.

However, other crimes --- such as armed robberies, burglaries, car jackings, rapes, purse snatching, etc. --- may also be recorded --- because, if things go 'haywire', someone may be killed or seriously maimed.


The Maps and Map Links

The maps and map links on this page are created by means of HTML-Javascript code as described on this Notes on Making Crime Maps page.

A link to a large map of the streets on 'the Peninsula' is to be placed here eventually.


Enough of this 'introduction'.

Below is a list of many 2018 Peninsula crime instances --- from January through December.
