How is that?
Well, according to the report, most of this years shootings about 75 percent have occurred in Brooklyn or The Bronx and have been gang-related or tied to disputes.
For example, the largest number of shootings 29 percent were tied to disputes, and nearly another quarter were clearly gang-related, the NYPD findings show. In addition, some 13 percent of shooting were linked to drugs, and 5 percent were motivated by revenge.
According to criminologists, historically, homicides and robberies are the biggest indicators of urban danger and theyve been dropping in the city so far this year, said a senior police official.
If youre a gang member dealing drugs, you ought to be worried. If youre not, you certainly have a lot less to worry about, the source explained.
