Judging from a map i saw, most shootings took place in downtown which came as a surprise to me .
Outside of the downtown, there is a higher than average concentration of gun crime in Northwestern Toronto, in the neighbourhoods of Mount Dennis, Weston, Rexdale and the Jane & Finch corridor.

Missouri is having a rough year in general - Kansas City's murder rate has also exploded in 2020:

Kansas City police have identified a child killed in a triple shooting there as a 1-year-old boy... The child’s death is the 148th homicide this year in Kansas City. At this time last year, 114 homicides had been recorded.

Stockholm Metro total: 27 (11 from shootings)

Sweden total: 80 (24 from Shootings)
23/9

Sweden (pop 10.2 mil)
Estimated total: 110 (36 shootings)

Stockholm Metro (pop 2.3 mil)
Estimated total: 37 (17 shootings)

Within City limits (Pop 960.000)
Estimated total: 21 (11 shootings)

Thanks for these stats.

Ottawa which has 1 million people in the city limits is at 7 I believe.

The metro area is smaller than Stockholm at about 1.5 million people.

The second-biggest city in Ottawa's metro is my own (Gatineau). We have about 285,000 people and 1-2 murders this year.

There have been 2-3 murders in other smaller places in the metro, so overall about 12 for 1.5 million people.

Montréal (2 million people) is at 23 for the year I think.

Montreal is at 15 for the island (2 million people) so far this year. 21 if you include the entire metropolitan area (4.3 million people)
Quebec City is at 1 (800K people)
Quebec (the province) is at 39 (8.5 million people)

Sorry, you're right.

I thought I heard a media report about the 23rd murder in Montreal. That's really weird.

Normally media reports always say "on the territory covered by the SPVM", which is the the city proper police that patrols the whole island - city proper plus some suburban cities. With 2 million people.

Of course you already know. Posting for the info of others.
