Gun crime recorded in London 2010-2019

Number of gun crimes recorded in London from 2010/11 to 2018/19 (in 1,000s)

by Statista Research Department, last edited May 22, 2019
Gun crime recorded in London 2010-2019 The 2.35 thousand Gun Crime offences recorded in London 2018/19 was the fifth-highest year for this type of crime after 2010/11. Compared with the previous year there were 180 fewer gun offences in 2018/19, but this is still far higher than the 1.79 thousand reported just three years earlier in 2015/16.
Knife crimes far more prevalent
The United Kingdom has some of the strictest gun laws in the world, resulting in relatively low levels of gun crime when compared to offences committed with knives or other sharp objects. The reporting year 2018/19 saw over 14.8 thousand knife crime offences committed in London, a peak for the period after 2010/11.

Comparisons with the United States
In 2017/18 only four percent of homicides in England and Wales were the result of shootings, compared with over 72 percent in the United States in 2017. Knives or other sharp instruments were involved in 39 percent of murders, making it the most common method of killing in England and Wales
