INDIANAPOLIS – In tragic news, the Indianapolis Star is reporting the city's 145th criminal homicide of 2016, making it the deadliest year in Indianapolis history.

Michael McQuillen, Chairman of the Marion County Republican Party, issued the following statement.

"Indianapolis is better than this. Indianapolis can do better than this. Indianapolis deserves better than this.

"Mayor Joe Hogsett has presided over the deadliest year in our city's history. He ran as a tough-on-crime prosecutor. When he entered office, he declared the city in a 'public safety crisis.' He's had a year to lead, and he has not led. Citizens should demand answers and progress.

"He has no plan for our crumbling infrastructure, no plan for addressing structural budget deficits, and any plans he has had for public safety are not working. In fact, his own police chief resigned just yesterday.

"At the same time, we commend the men and women of the IMPD and all of our first responders for their heroism and public service during this difficult time. They deserve our unwavering support as a community.

"We encourage the Mayor to take a holistic approach, and focus on the root causes of crime."
