INDIANAPOLIS — This city saw a record-breaking 271 homicides in 2021.

Another 10 people were killed in parts of Marion County not patrolled by the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.

In 2022, WRTV is again working to remember the people whose lives were lost to Indianapolis violence, and the impact of their deaths on family, friends and the community.

These victims are more than numbers. They are sons and daughters. They leave behind people who loved them.

Here are their names and the details we have on how they died. With the help of their loved ones, we will show you their faces and share their stories.

If your friend or loved one is on this list, or if your life has been impacted by homicide, we'd like to hear from you. Contact WRTV reporter Vic Ryckaert at victor.ryckaert@wrtv.com or on Twitter at @vicryc.
