NYC goes entire weekend without a shooting for first time in decades
New York may be the city that never sleeps — but for once, it’s not the sound of people getting shot that’s keeping Big Apple residents awake.
Not a single person was reported shot for all of Friday, Saturday and Sunday — marking the first city weekend free of shootings in at least a quarter-century, officials said Monday.
“I really don’t remember a weekend that no one was shot in the entire city,” NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan — on the job since 1982 — told The Post. “It’s a different city.”
Mayor de Blasio took a victory lap over the statistic, crowing to an NYPD graduating class Monday morning, “I have to tell you, this is a winning team for sure. And to give you some evidence, about as recent as it can get, this last weekend — Friday, Saturday and Sunday — there was not a single shooting in all of New York City. Isn’t that amazing?”
