NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Twenty-three people were shot over the weekend, two fatally, according to the NYPD.
Mayor Bill de Blasio said he’s addressing the issue “aggressively,” WCBS 880’s Monica Miller reported.
“I give Commissioner Bratton tremendous credit. He is the guy, of course, who brought us the CompStat system,” the mayor said, referring to the statistical system largely credited for cutting crime in the city in the 1990s. “The whole notion is to quickly and agilely make moves and adjustments, and that’s being done as we speak.”
