For the first time police officials can remember, New YorkÂ City went through an entire day with no one shot, stabbed or slashed.
The Daily News reports that the 1-day no-crime wave happenedÂ Monday. Police spokesman Paul Browne said it was a nice way to start theÂ week.
Browne said he couldn’t remember the last time the cityÂ experienced 24 hours with no reported gun or knife violence.
The city is on track to record the lowest number ofÂ murders in decades. There have been 366 murders so far this year, compared withÂ 472 all of last year.
Someone did pull a trigger Monday — a 16-year-old walkedÂ into Bronx Lebanon Hospital with a gunshot wound to his right thigh.
But police later determined the teen accidentally shotÂ himself and was not involved in a crime.
The streak ended 11:20 a.m. Tuesday when a 27-year-old manÂ was shot in Brooklyn.
