2017 Homicides In Louisville Down, But Not For Every Neighborhood

Link to Story

2016 stands as Louisville’s deadliest year yet, setting a record for the number of murders in the city. Though murders decreased in 2017, a higher percentage of them happened in West Louisville.

Areas west of Ninth Street, what the city calls “urban neighborhoods,” accounted for 81 percent of the murders in 2016. In 2017, that figure rose to 83 percent.
