    Its been 8 days in NYC since anyone was killed. We were going for the record and some putz in Brooklyn goes and ruins it!

    An 18-year-old man shot and killed on a Brooklyn street Monday ended a seven-day stretch with no homicides, police records show.
    The unidentified teen took a bullet to the back near 53rd St. and Avenue J in Flatlands about 10:15 p.m.
    Emergency workers rushed the bleeding victim to Kings County Hospital, where he died. No arrests were immediately made.
    NYPD data shows it was the first killing in a week. Cops investigated eight murders during the same week last year, according to the records.
    It was the longest murder-free period since the nine days from this past Jan. 17 to Jan. 25 — a streak that coincided with a bitter cold snap, officials said.
