FIRST PLACE: Jake May, The Flint Journal, MLive.com, "This has to stop"
Caption: A tear rolls down the cheek of James Tyler, 9, as his mother Alyssa Tyler holds him closely near the crime tape while coping with the death of 1-year-old child Genesis General Tyler and Rita Langworthy, 70, in a double shooting as Flint Police investigate on Monday morning, Aug. 10, 2015 at the 200 block of West Home Avenue on Flint's north side. James Tyler was in the home laying on the floor as a series of bullets fired through the walls, crying for the death of his newest little brother. The double homicide brings the count to 33 in Flint so far this year. There were 31 total killings in Flint in all of 2014. "This has to stop," Alyssa Tyler screamed out. "He was just a baby. And we were so close to getting out of this place. I just can't believe it."
