Mother’s Playground Shooting Latest Bronx Homicide Covered in Ambitious NYT Series

The fatal shooting of a South Bronx mother of three is the latest homicide to be covered by New York Times reporters Al Baker and Benjamin Mueller, whose project ‘Murder in the 4-0’ is tracking the life and death of every person to be murdered in the 40th Police Precinct in the Bronx this year.

Jessica White was killed on June 11th by a hooded gunman in a playground outside the John Adams Houses, a project in the Woodstock area of the Bronx, where she had been watching her young children play. It is believed that she may have been accidentally caught up in gang violence related to the trade in drugs.
