    July was the deadliest month Baltimore has seen in more than 43 years.

    The city’s rate of homicide and other crimes have spiked in the three months following days of rioting and unrest in response to the death of Freddie Gray, who died as a result of injuries he suffered while in police custody. Six officers in the department have been indicted in his death.

    Baltimore police crime statistics show the number of homicides have been significantly higher than last year. In May, 42 homicides were recorded in the city, but that number increased to 45 in July — the highest number of killings on the streets of Baltimore since August 1972, according to The Baltimore Sun.

    The city has struggled to recover from the unrest that erupted in the wake of Gray’s death, but the number of people killed has been especially troubling for the city’s top officials, prompting then-Police Commissioner Anthony Batts to seek federal help.
