This weekend saw 26 shootings, where seven victims died. That's 5 percent of the city's total shootings for the year so far. Most of the incidences were in Brooklyn. In response, Commissioner Kelly said he'd boost foot patrols in the projects, increase plain clothes detectives in anti-crime units, and add surveillance towers. Still, the number of shootings so far this year is the lowest in a decade and 29 percent less than last year.
