NYPD Stats Show 321 Murders So Far This Year - Trend Could Mark Largest Increase in Decades

NEW YORK - At least 321 people have been murdered in New York City so far this year, surpassing the 319 murders recorded in the five boroughs in all of 2019, NYPD records show.

By comparison, there were 230 murders from Jan. 1 to Sept. 14 of last year.

The additional 91 murders this year represents an increase of nearly 40 percent.

If that rate of increase continues for the rest of the year, the city would see the largest year-over-year jump in murders since at least 1990, when the number peaked at more than 2,200.
