For a year, WNYC profiled the life of every child in the five boroughs who died of gunshot wounds. We wanted to get to know the individuals behind the statistics: the youngest New Yorkers who were shot and killed. From the end of August 2012 through August 2013, ten lives were  interrupted while doing the most ordinary things--sitting on a bus, leaving an 18th birthday party, walking to buy a slice of pizza.
The series,  In Harm's Way,  was produced by Kathleen Horan.
