Number of NYC shootings in 2020 close to totals for same period in past two years combined

The Big Apple is set to hit more grim milestones, with the number of shootings and gun victims so far this year set to match figures for same period the past two years — combined.
There have been 821 shootings and 1,000 gun victims as of Saturday.
Last year for same time frame, there were 466 shootings and 551 victims, while in 2018, there were 449 incidents and 548 victims.
That means combined, there were 905 shooting incidents and 1,099 victims for time period in 2018 and 2019 — close to the totals for this year alone, according to statistics released by the NYPD on Sunday.
This past week, there were more than twice as many shootings over the same time span last year, with 38 in the week ending early Sunday compared to just 16 over the same week in 2019, police said.
The number of murders this year did dip from last year, with four vs. eight for the week last year.
Police reported a dozen shootings late Saturday into early Sunday with three people killed — including a man who inadvertently flicked a cigarette at a group of men in the Bronx and was shot dead in front of his wife.
The new stats come just one week after police reported that the city had already surpassed the total number of shootings for all of last year, hitting the 777 three mark Aug. 1, topping the 2019 total of 776 for the entire year.
