The murder-free streak has ended in the city.
New York had gone nearly eight full days without a murder starting October 7.
But, an 18-year-old man was shot and killed in Flatlands, Brooklyn at about 10 p.m. Monday night.
The streak marked the second week this year that the city was murder-free. The city went without a single murder for nine days between January 17 and January 25.
“We had no homicides in the city, which is, I think, emblematic of how safe the city has become and what a great job the New York City police officers are doing,” Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said at the Columbus Day Parade.
Murders in the city have decreased about 26% over the past year, with 256 murders so far for 2013. Murders involving guns are down 60% from the same time last year.
