New York City is on track to have a record low murder rate this year.
According to the New York City Police Department, there have been 136 murders in the city as of Friday.
That's less than one murder a day and is 20 percent lower than 2011's numbers.
515 people were murdered last year.
If the trend continues it would be the lowest number of murders on record since the Department began releasing regular crime statistics in the early 1960s.
