NYC Sets A Record, Most Media Sources Ignored It

New York City was on a roll: No murders for 12 days in a row. NYC hasn’t had 12 days of no homicides since at least the 90’s. Tim’s Take looks at the story.

New York City’s longest recorded homicide-free streak ended on Friday the 13th, when a 28-year-old man was shot multiple times just before midnight, according to CNN.

Eric Roman was transported to a nearby hospital in critical condition with gunshot wounds to his head, hand and leg and died Saturday, said the NYPD.

New York City had gone 12 days without a homicide, its longest stretch on modern record, police said Monday.

The last reported homicide was February 1, Super Bowl Sunday, in Upper Manhattan, police said.
