A University of Arkansas at Little Rock researcher will receive funding from the National Institute of Justice to study which residents are at greatest risk of becoming a homicide victim.

UALR announced Monday that assistant professor Emily Berthelot in the Department of Criminal Justice has been awarded $161,551 for the study.

The university says Berthelot will analyze the impact of community and individual characteristics to better understand a person's risk of becoming a homicide victim.

Berthelot says her research will examine individuals and community characteristics in an effort to determine whether being disadvantaged, living in a disadvantaged neighborhood or a combination of the two increases the chances of being a homicide victim.

Also running into a " black male approximately 5'9" , 18-31 years old wearing a black hoody" could also impact your chances of living a full life.
