NEW YORK, (PIX11)– It looks like murderers have met their match, and her name is Mother Nature. The city has gone 8 days, almost 9 without a single murder. Cops believe the weather is to credit for keeping our streets safe. They say since most murders happen outside it might just be too cold to kill. NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly says his officers tactics are also a reason for a drop in homicides.
