Cleveland's year-to-date homicide total stands at 128, according to the Cleveland Police.

With two Holiday weekends remaining, that's already seven more than last year and represents the highest total since 2007, when there were 134 homicides in the calendar year.

2006: 119
2007: 134
2008: 102
2009: 120
