For the first time police officials can remember, New York  City went through an entire day with no one shot, stabbed or slashed.

The Daily News reports that the 1-day no-crime wave happened  Monday. Police spokesman Paul Browne said it was a nice way to start the  week.

Browne said he couldn’t remember the last time the city  experienced 24 hours with no reported gun or knife violence.

The city is on track to record the lowest number of  murders in decades. There have been 366 murders so far this year, compared with  472 all of last year.

New York City’s murder rate peaked at 2,245 in 1990.

Someone did pull a trigger Monday — a 16-year-old walked  into Bronx Lebanon Hospital with a gunshot wound to his right thigh.

But police later determined the teen accidentally shot  himself and was not involved in a crime.

The streak ended 11:20 a.m. Tuesday when a 27-year-old man  was shot in Brooklyn.
