New York Marks First Shooting-Free Weekend In 25 Years


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.”
