NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – Ten police precincts accounted for nearly half of the shootings in the city in June, according to NYPD data.

An analysis of police statistics by the New York Post showed 90 of the 205 shootings in June were in the 10 precincts in Brooklyn, the Bronx and Manhattan. That’s 44 percent of the shootings.

Six of the precincts were in Brooklyn: 67th, 71st, 73rd, 75th, 79th and 81st.

Three of the precincts were in the Bronx: 42nd, 44th and 46th.

And one precinct, the 23rd in East Harlem, was in Manhattan.

The 73rd precinct in Brownsville had the most violence—22 victims in 15 shootings.

Earlier this week, Chief of Crime Control Strategies Michael LiPetri said, “Those communities are being overrun by the small percentage of gang members who have no regard for their own life and absolutely zero regard for the community.”

This June was reportedly the city’s bloodiest since 1996, with 39 people killed and at least 270 wounded in shootings.
