Top 10 U.S. Cities With Highest Murders in 2020

Below you can find our rankings for the top 10 U.S. cities with the highest number of murders in 2020. Our data is sourced from Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) program. We will be using 2020 data that are reported by cities that have a population of at least 250,000. Some of these cities report their crime stats in real-time and others are a few months behind. That’s why we are going to calculate the number of murders per day in 2020 and then rank the cities using this data point. Please note that we don’t have 2020 statistics for some of the cities like Detroit, Memphis, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, and Fort Worth.
