New York City has gone 11 days without a homicide, the longest streak since 1994.

The 20-year record was set at midnight Thursday. That’s the longest stretch the New York Police Department has seen since it began recording statistics using a program called Compstat in 1994.

The city’s last homicide was Feb. 1 when five people were shot at a Hamilton Heights deli. One man, 28-year-old Graham Shadale, died at the scene.

Police Commissioner Bill Bratton told “CBS This Morning” he didn’t want to jinx the good news.

“We’re into our 12th day now, Charlie. Eleven is a record and let’s keep it going,” he said.
