From deadly shootings to brazen acts of gang violence -- the Las Vegas valley saw its fair share of murders and violent crimes in 2018, but a look at the statistics shows a jump in violent crime across the Las Vegas valley.

In North Las Vegas, there were 35 murders, which is up from the 10 murders in 2017. People who live on the north side of the city say they're fed up with the violence.
