Are some New Yorkers turning into mad dogs? Let's hope not, but according to the latest recorded facts and figures - Almost 100 people were shot in NYC this past week, which is about double the amount of people shot during the same time span last year. This according to NYPD statistics.

As of Sunday, there were 72 incidents in each of the five NYC Boroughs, up from 40 last year.

98 individuals were shot, up from 53 for the same period last year - an increase of about 46%.

These figures do not include the 15 people shot on Labor Day, including two police officers.
