Baltimore has been having its worst year for homicides on record.

As the Baltimore Sun reports, the city’s homicide count for 2017 stands at 278. If that pace holds, we’ll end up with more than 350 homicides, making 2017 Baltimore’s worst year ever recorded, not only in the per-capita rate but also in raw numbers.

To put that in greater perspective, New York City, with a population of more than 8.5 million, is on pace for fewer than 333 homicides in 2017 as of September 1. Baltimore is a city of a little more than 600,000.
