So far, luckily, only one person has died. But just think of the expense of these gun shots. Thirty-one people shot in one weekend in NYC. I’m going to wager that each gunshot costs, on average, around $500,000 in medical expenses, and most victims are either uninsured or covered by Medicaid.
Thirty-one shootings = roughly $15 million.
UPDATE: We finished the weekend with 50 shootings, and ten dead.
One of the bloodiest weekends in recent city history leaves 31 shot
