Messages to the Police Benevolent Association, which represents rank-and-file officers, and the offices of Mayor Bill de Blasio and Police Commissioner Dermot Shea were not immediately returned.

De Blasio and Shea have partially attributed the uptick in gun play to the physical closure of the court system amid the coronavirus outbreak.

"We do not have a fully functioning court system [and] that is a profound problem," the mayor told reporters during a Thursday news briefing. "It's just self-evident the court system is not up and running the way it would normally be at this point in the year. This is historically, sadly, the toughest time of the year – summer, the middle of summer, is the toughest time of the year in terms of gun violence."

Earlier in the week, de Blasio and Shea called for the city's five district attorneys and New York state’s Chief Judge Janet DiFiore to fully reopen the courts quickly so jury trials can resume.

India coronavirus deaths pass 30,000, more than France

  India coronavirus deaths pass 30,000, more than France India's death toll from the novel coronavirus overtook France's on Friday with 30,601 fatalities and nearly 50,000 new cases overnight, official data showed. The death toll is the sixth-biggest behind the US, Brazil, Britain, Mexico and Italy, according to an AFP tally. It has the third-highest caseload with almost 1.3 million infections. In the past 24 hours the country recorded 740 new deaths from the virus and 49,310 fresh infections, according to the health ministry.But many experts say that with testing levels low, the extent of the pandemic across the world's second-most populous country may be far worse than officially reported.

— Florida has now surpassed New York in the total number of reported coronavirus cases, according to NPR. The only state that surpasses those two is California, the most populous state with a total of 452,288 cases reported, according to the Johns Hopkins dashboard and NPR.

Much of the violence can be attributed to the disbanding of police anti-crime units, progressive bail reform laws that fail to hold suspects accountable and doing away tackling quality of life summonses for such crimes as marijuana possession, said Joseph Giacalone, a retired NYPD sergeant and adjunct professor at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in Manhattan.


"The real problem as far as I'm concerned in New York City is the removal of all forms of deterrence," Giacalone told Fox News. "When you had the fact that if you got arrested you went to jail or went to prison if convicted ... that no longer is a threat. You get rid of the anti-crime team on top of that and you now have a cocktail for disaster."

Other factors are laws intended to reign in police misconduct that have hampered law enforcement efforts to arrest criminal suspects, he said.
