What we know so far
Citywide shooting incidents through the first 11 months of 2020 surged to levels unseen in years, the NYPD said. Twenty-eight people were murdered in the five boroughs, last month – five more than were killed last November. This year has also seen a 38.4 percent increase in the number of victims murdered in New York City compared to last year.
Mayor Bill de Blasio told reporters at his City Hall briefing earlier this month that the surge in violent crime this year can be pinned on an ‘absolute perfect storm’ that hit New York this year. ‘You cannot combine a massive health crisis, tens of thousands of people dying, hospitals overwhelmed, the economy is shut down, schools are shut down, houses of worship shut down, society not having its normal moorings all at once, a social justice crisis…’ the mayor said.
