Is the sky falling?

Not yet. But the sky did get a little lower in NYC last month. Over the 28-day period ending 4/6/14, compared to 2013, the number of people shot increased 40 percent (101 vs 72). The increases were found, not surprisingly, in the Bronx (27 vs 18), Brooklyn North (28 vs 17) and Queens South (12 vs 6).

Cause for alarm? I don't know. But my eyebrow is raised...

Still, for the year, shooting and murders are a bit lower than last year.
