Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, IMPD, released final 2019 non-fatal shooting information this week. 

With a total of 452, the city saw five more non-fatal shooting incidents than last year.

IMPD Chief Randal Taylor says in an email statement that Indianapolis is making progress in overall violence reduction efforts but, "families impacted by gun violence remains at an unacceptable level,” says Taylor. 

Earlier this month, the city reported a slight reduction in homicides for 2019.
