Congratulations on your basic human decency, New York! We’ve gone one full week without killing one another.

According to a new report from the Mayor’s Office, there were no murders reported across the five boroughs between last Monday, October 7th, and Sunday, October 13th. It was the first murder-less week in the city since January.

That’s right – zero, zip, zilch, nada, no murders! This also marks the lowest number of shootings and the lowest number of murders “at any time since comparable records were kept.” The City has seen a 26.0 percent decrease in murders overall – 256 so far this year, down from 346 last year.
