There were no reported homicides in any of NYC five boroughs last week, according to NYPD. It was the first homicide-free week this year.
The city has experienced a 26 percent decline in killings. New York has seen 256 homicides thus far, down from 346 in the same time period in 2012. Shootings have declined 23.2 percent, from 1,145 year to year.
But why is it that we can not see a homicide free week every week?
