Detroit suburb sees murder spike since police layoffs

A Detroit suburb that was forced to lay off half its police department has seen a spike in violent crime, MyFoxDetroit.com reports.

Since July, when the police force was cut in half, there have been 10 murders in Inkster, a Detroit suburb with a population of about 25,000. There have been 12 murders so far this year.

Violent crime in Inkster has jumped 311 percent from 2010-2011, according to MyFoxDetroit.com, citing the city’s website.

The latest victim, a man in his 30s, was shot multiple times on Henry St. and died at the hospital.

Police are asking anyone with information on the latest homicide to call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-SPEAKUP (1-800-773-2587).
