From the Daily News:
Halfway through the year, crime has increased in all but one of the most violent felonies, and shootings plague neighborhoods all over the city.
The overall crime rate through June 27 is down 1% percent, thanks to a 7% drop in grand larcenies. The other six categories of major felonies, however, are up.
Murders have jumped 11%, to 221 from 199, and rapes are up 13%, from 555 to 629. More people have been shot this year, 799 compared to 748, a 7% increase.
