To the uninitiated, the staccato noise that shattered the day and night sounded like fireworks that echoed off buildings in the days surrounding the Fourth of July.

Police at the scene on E. 39th St. in Brooklyn after Nahjah Ellis was murdered on Sunday, July 5, 2020.


But to those in the know, whose lives have been touched by violence and grief, the sounds they heard in the hours after Independence Day weren’t bombs bursting in air.


People were being shot and killed. At a near-record clip. On the Sunday, July 5, that followed the holiday, nine lives were ended by gunfire, and it hit every borough except Queens.


Besides the senselessness and the outrage that followed, each horrific homicide had something else in common, from the caught-on-camera murder in Mount Eden to the onslaught in East Flatbush — no arrests have been made.
