    New York City has hit a record for the longest homicide-free stretch since the NYPD began tracking that data in 1994.

    The NYPD says it’s been 11 days since the city has seen a murder.

    Police say 10-day, homicide-free stretches have happened before, including one period in 2014, but this is the first recorded 11-day stretch.

    The last recorded murder in the city happened at a Hamilton Heights deli on Super Bowl Sunday, according to the New York Post.

    A 28-year-old man was shot in the head and four others were injured.
