Columbus Set Record For Homicides In 2020

The City of Columbus saw 175 homicides in 2020, shattering the record of 143 set in 2017.  The city blames the record number on the COVID recession and lack of trust between the community and police.  Columbus reported 103 homicides in 2018 and 104 in 2019.
