Yes, it could be. Do you know the population increase from last year to this year? Is It close to 46% population increase? Or do you mean over a period of years?

I went to the gov census site

https://www.census.gov/quickfacts/fa...sota/PST045216

Population, Census, April 1, 2010 population 285,068
Estimate July 1, 2016 population 302,398
That is an estimated approx 17,000 increase in a 6 year span, about 3,000 a year. Which isn't close to 46%. With room for error considering Glenfield's point on calling in on gunshot sounds.
I agree with you on increase population and crime increases. But does that match up totally in St. Paul?

People living in the thick of it ..........

St. Paul Women Form Online Neighborhood Watch Group
So far this year in St. Paul there have been more than 1,140 reports of gunfire.

Some of those shots have resulted in injuries. Others in deaths, like that of 38-year-old Dawahn Littles.
These kids don't have any heart and no remorse about anything," said his mother, Daughn Littles. "They just want to hurt and kill people."

Nancy Hochschild said she hears gunshots on a daily basis. She's also been the victim of a burglary, another reason she decided to turn her wounds into wisdom and create a neighborhood watch group online.
In just 24 hours this weekend, there was a shooting near Arlington Avenue and Farrington Street, where police recovered three shell casings. No one was hurt, and no one was arrested.

Across town on Marshall Avenue between Oxford and Chatsworth streets, more bullets were exchanged between occupants of two passing cars.

There was a report of an assault at Johnny Baby's, and someone aimed their anger and a gun at another person near the Lamplighter Lounge.

The online community bulletin board on Facebook is similar to a neighborhood watch group. It's a one-stop site for folks citywide to share concerns or suspicious behavior they've witnessed. The concept is to create awareness and action.

Atalanta, you remind me of that woman from the Youtube video who couldn’t figure out the difference (or lack there of) between a large pizza cut into 8 slices vs a large pizza cut into 12 slices.
