CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Cincinnati city leaders are holding a press conference Tuesday afternoon to discuss the recent rash of violence in the city.

Mayor Mark Mallory, City Manager Milton Dohoney Jr., Police Chief Tom Streicher and City Council Public Safety Committee Chair Cecil Thomas will all speak.

Between March 18 and 28, there were eight homicides in the city of Cincinnati. Hamilton County Coroner Dr. O'dell Owens said last week that often times, there is more activity in the spring months because of warmer weather.
