INDIANAPOLIS — After the deadliest year in 2021 in Indianapolis' history, 2022 started off the year with seven homicides in the first week.

In 2021, Indianapolis recorded 271 homicides. In all of Marion County, there were 281 homicides. Those include homicides in Cumberland, Speedway, Lawrence and other areas in the county.

As WRTV Digital Reporter Vic Ryckaert previously reported, there is no simple explanation for what's driving the surge in killings. IMPD Chief Randal Taylor told WRTV in November the killings have been fueled by disputes over things like drugs, gangs and other random beefs or slights.

You can also compare it to the homicide maps from 2015-2021 by clicking the arrow in the top left of the map, then clicking the check-boxes for each year.

NOTE: Some years, including 2022, include all homicides in Marion County, not just those in Indianapolis.
