Blacks and Hispanics make up 89% of murderers in New York City

Jake Dobkin:

The bottom line: murders are concentrated in poor neighborhoods, especially in northern Manhattan, Eastern Brooklyn and Queens, and the South Bronx. If you look at the data, Blacks and Hispanics make up 89% of murderers and 87% of victims, and almost 90% of both groups are men. Some mild surprises: almost 70% of the victims knew their murderer, and while guns accounted for 66% of the murder weapons, "cutting" instruments were used 22% of the time.
