South/East Austin Crime Spike?

I half-jokingly made fun of K-EYE last week about their headlines, but we appear to have had a rough weekend in South/East Austin.

A man was stabbed to death in an apartment complex across the street from Travis High School on Sunday and another man was shot during a home invasion yesterday. It appears there was a second shooting later in the day. I think the Statesman story last week on Mission Hill, a street only a few blocks from my house and notorious among the neighbors, has made me somewhat hypersensitive, but this still seems like another outlier weekend for crime by Austin standards. I personally thought the Mission Hill story was a bit exaggerated in its description of the street.
