Murders, shootings at 25-year low in New York

The number of murders and shootings in New York continued to fall last year to hit their lowest levels since the early 1990s, new figures showed Wednesday. The good news for New York, the largest U.S. metropolis with a population of 8.5 million, comes as other American cities like Chicago struggle with an explosion in murder and other violent crimes. New York notched 335 murders in 2016, a 4.8 percent decrease from 2015, according to the latest police statistics.
