Crime committed in the UK capital, is set to beat the 134 from 2018. Last year, 132 homicides took place within the capital. As of today, it has already reached 104.
It is no surprise that the majority of the perpetrators (& the victims) tend to be from an ethnic background, either having moved here or have parents from abroad. A look at the list of the sadly deceased, gives you a good indication they are mostly from Africa.
