MIAMI — (CNN) - For the first time since 1957, the city of Miami went at least seven weeks without a homicide.
The Miami Police Department released the statistics.
While stay at home orders are playing a role, the police chief says the trend started in mid-February before social distancing was put in place.
The city did not report a homicide from Feb. 17 to April 12.
Miami police say other crimes have also decreased in the city.
