VENTURE CITY VIEWER - LATE EDITION
A wave of street killings is sweeping through many of Venture City's neighborhoods, leaving a trail of grieving families, overworked police and bewildered community leaders.
The onslaught pushes the murder rate in Venture City to ninth-highest among cities in the biggest U.S. metropolitan areas, higher than in Miami and Los Angeles and triple New York's rate.
With no relationship between the murder victims and no connection to the apparent randomness of the attacks, the police and the mayor's office have turned to Venture City's super-powered community to aid them in bringing the killer to justice.
Valorian, who was seen flying from the mayor's office earlier this week, could not be reached for comment.
