The city of Detroit, Michigan made headlines last month when police reported that there were 13 people shot in 24 hours. But other cities in the US are also starting to see an increase in violent crime.
The surge in violence comes as the FBI releases figures that indicate that the crimes are part of a nationwide trend. The FBI figures suggest the overall increase in violence is due to a surge in crimes committed in larger cities-- after six years of steady declines.
Violent crimes include murder, rape, robbery and aggravated assaults. Nationally, those crime rates have edged up 1.2 percent year-over-year, according to the FBI's Preliminary Annual Uniform Crime Report.
The largest increases happened in cities with populations of between 500,000 and one million people. This is where violent crime rose by 3.7 percent, including a 12.5 percent spike in murder rates.
The crime rates would include the kidnapping of the three women who were held hostage in a quiet Cleveland, Ohio suburban home for nine years. They were later rescued with the help of a neighbor. But experts say such crimes indicate a disturbing trend.
Experts say they aren't sure if this is just a momentary blip in criminal behavior or if this is the beginning of a long-term slippery slope. Initial reports are too early to determine the exact cause of the recent spike in violent crime.
