According to the latest data from the NYPD, published on July 27, crime and robberies have increased 39 percent and 36 percent in total in the Big Apple, respectively.

However, the number of shooting incidents has decreased by almost six percent compared to the same period last year.

The July 5 shooting came less than two weeks before a crime-ridden night in New York City on July 18, when nine other crimes took place across the five boroughs, killing two and injuring 12.

A gunfight also broke out early this morning between NYPD officers and robbers outside a New York City club.

Police officers were notified by a bouncer of a suspected robbery at Club Doux, located in the upscale Chelsea neighborhood, around 3 a.m.

When plainclothes officers in NYPD windbreakers arrived at the scene, the robbers reportedly opened fire.

Officers fired back at the suspects, who then fled in a silver Audi sedan heading west to West 21st Street and 7th Avenue. They were last seen wearing black hoodies, police said.

There were several partygoers in the street at the time of the shooting. One of the bullets hit an Uber, but no one was injured.

No arrests have been made as of Friday afternoon. The Chelsea Street where the club is located was also the site of a July 18 shooting that injured a man and hit a police car.

The victim of the shooting was found conscious and alert. The suspect fled. It is not known whether he has been arrested.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams, 61, has promised New Yorkers time and again that he will tackle crime and has even campaigned on it.

A few weeks ago, he again promised citizens, “We’re going to turn this crime around, and when we do, people will really see the progress we’ve made in other parts of the city.”

He also blamed the city’s criminal justice system for the increase in violence.

“It’s unfortunate that the climate we work in…where the entire criminal justice system has turned away from the public and the public’s rights to live safely in their city,” he said. “We got nearly 3,800 guns off the streets and many of the people who carried those guns were able to get back out on the streets.”

Crime has skyrocketed in New York City in recent years.  This year, crime is up 36 percent so far compared to the same time last year

The Supreme Court also last month overturned NYC’s gun laws and overturned a 108-year-old law that required New Yorkers to have a “good reason” to carry a concealed weapon.

Thursday’s 6-3 ruling overturned the verdict of a lower court, which upheld the law that limits licenses to carry concealed weapons in public only to those who demonstrate “good reason.”

Judge Clarence Thomas provided the majority opinion, writing that New York law prevented law-abiding citizens from exercising their Second Amendment rights.
