Flint on pace for lower homicide rate

Murder Graphic
Murder Graphic

FLINT (WKZO) -- It is known nationally for being one of the most violent cities in the U.S., but Flint is on pace for near record lows this year when it comes to homicides. As of June 23rd, the city had recorded just 13 murders which is exactly half of what was recorded last year at the same time.

If the pace continues, the city would only have 26 homicides which would be the lowest in nearly 20 years. The numbers are a bit surprising, because just two years ago Flint recorded a record 67 homicides and already had 32 by June 23rd.
