Amazing! New York City goes 12 days without Killing

February 18, 2015 1:50 am

So for 12 days no one was killed in City and New Yorkers are
happy about it and reporting it. It’s a modern day record. Read the
report from CNN below..

New
York City’s longest recorded homicide-free streak ended late Friday
night, when a 28-year-old man was shot multiple times just before
midnight.

Eric Roman was
transported to a nearby hospital in critical condition with gunshot
wounds to his head, hand and leg and died Saturday, according to the NYPD.
New York City had gone 12 days without a homicide, its longest stretch on modern record, police said yesterday Monday.

The last reported homicide was February 1, Super Bowl Sunday, in Upper Manhattan, police said.
That
day, police responded to a 911 call about multiple shots being fired
and found five individuals with gunshot wounds, the NYPD said. One of
those five, Graham Shadale, 28, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police have not yet made arrests in either case and both investigations are ongoing, officials said.
The
streak has been the longest since the New York Police Department began
recording statistics with a computerized program called Compstat in
1994, a police representative said.
Police Commissioner Bill Bratton hushed talk of the streak Friday on “CBS This Morning.”
“Shh
… we don’t want to jinx it,” Bratton told host Charlie Rose. “We’re
into our 12th day now, Charlie. Eleven is a record and let’s keep it
going.”
Despite the record-breaking streak, there has been an uptick in shooting incidents compared with the same time period last year.
The
week between February 1 and February 8 experienced 110 shooting
incidents in 2015 versus 91 in 2014, according to Detective Cheryl
Crispin of the NYPD public information office.
New
York City’s last record for a streak of days without a homicide was 10
days. In 2014, there were no recorded homicides between February 13 and
February 22.
