Compared to a big city like Chicago, Indy is a small town.
However, Indy's murder rate per 100,000 people exceeds Chicago's (15.1 homicides per capita.)
In 2013, Indianapolis had a 140 murders (17 homicides per capita.)
Indy's murder rate has climbed year since. In 2018, 157 murders were reported.

Another interesting statistic is that there are nearly twice as many suicides by gun as murders
by gun in the U.S.
Notice in the "Notes" above, that it excludes deaths from self-harm.
As a matter of fact, there are nearly twice as many suicides by firearms in the U.S. than there are homicides by firearms!
I have heard it suggested that if firearms were not so easily available, many suicides wouldn't happen because people
who get suicidal for a moment, get over it soon.
