Murder Much?

Detroit, Michigan was the murder capital of the world and the U.S. at one point in history.

Since then, St. Louis, Missouri, has taken the unfortunate top spot.

Other cities that have suffered with this distinction are:
New Orleans, LA; Birmingham, AL; Washington, D.C. and Richmond, VA.

The information was calculated by looking at the number of murders compared to the number of residents.

Gun deaths top the list.
