Preliminary data released by the FBI this week shows that Flint, once again, is the most violent city in the country.

According to MLive, the data focuses on crimes reported to authorities during the first six months of 2012. The data shows that Flint had more reported violent crimes per capita than any other city with at least 100,000 people.

There were just under 1,400 violent crimes reported per 100,000 Flint residents during the first six months of 2012. Those numbers are nearly 40 percent more than the just under 1,000 reported in the country’s second-most violent city, Detroit.

Flint Mayor Dayne Walling told MLive that “the city of Flint struggled with high crime and violence” and “the statistics reflect that.”

The city tied its homicide record in 2012 with 66 deaths.
