Thanks to Neighborhoodscout.com we can all sleep a little more cozy knowing that Shreveport and Bossier City are not on this list of the top 30 Murder Capitals of the United States for 2017. However, 3 cities in the bayou state did make the list.

According to Neighborhoodscout.com here are the following "Murder Capitals" of Louisiana:

New Orleans, Louisiana made 9th.

Monroe, Louisiana made 14th.

Baton Rogue, Louisiana made 20th.

The top ranking murder city is East St. Louis, Illinois. At least we aren't number one! The study was based on the highest number of murders per 1,000 residents and the number of murders reported to the FBI. I know... scary stuff.
