The study found that there were about 32 homicides per 100,000 black Kansas residents in 2006. Pennsylvania was first, followed by Michigan and Indiana. The report analyzed the most recent data available from the FBI.
Kansas didn't make the top five in the previous two studies. Co-author and Violence Policy Center Executive Director Josh Sugarmann says the results show that the role of guns in black homicides must be addressed.
