2. Baltimore, MD

Notorious for its extremely high crime rates compared to the national average, Baltimore also ranks as the 23rd most dangerous city in the world, with 51 homicides per 100,000 population.

As in most cities in the U.S., within the city, several specific neighborhoods, ridden with poverty, drug gang activity, and violence, have the highest concentration of crime.

 Historically, West Baltimore has seen the most crime problems. However, in 2016, the Coldstream Homestead Montebello neighborhood in Northeast Baltimore became the deadliest neighborhood. One in every two shootings was fatal, compared to the city average of one in three.

 The record homicide rate was set in 2015 when Baltimore had the highest homicide rate in its history – 52.5 per 100,000 people or 344 homicides. Of those, the vast majority, or 321 (93.3%) of the victims, were African-American.

 Poverty and organized crime have been responsible for a lot of the violence in the city. Still, another major problem for authorities in recent years has been drug use.

 According to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), 10% of Baltimore’s population is addicted to heroin.
