If the current homicide rate in St. Louis maintains its pace, the Missouri city could be on track to surpass the 194 recorded homicides it observed in 2019.

Between January and May, the city had 77 recorded homicides, according to data from the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department. When adding in the number of homicides from the unfinished June, the total number jumps up to 99, the police department’s 2020 UCR Homicide Analysis shows as of Monday.

“We have a violence crisis because we’re not doing what’s necessary,” said James Clark, a vice president of public safety and community response for the St Louis Urban League, in an interview with FOX 2 St. Louis. “This is senseless violence, but now we’re looking at needless violence. We need not continue at the rate that is happening in the St. Louis Metropolitan area.”
