Indianapolis marked its deadliest year to date in November, with a violent weekend pushing the city past its criminal homicide record.

Seventeen people were killed in November. The growing number of killings reflect a trend of increasing homicides seen the past several years, except for a downtick in 2019.

Indianapolis' killings keep climbing:: There is no code anymore

The record-breaking numbers have city leaders, activists and Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department top brass searching for answers and solutions.

While they say they cannot make a direct link, they suggest disruptions by the pandemic are unmistakable factors in the surging violence.

“As the pandemic wanes, are those numbers going to go down automatically?" Police Chief Randal Taylor told IndyStar. "A lot of people talk to me about systemic issues that exist … This may be the perfect storm of the existence of those systemic issues and the pandemic coming together at once.”
