"New Yorkers are getting better at murder"

According to Columbia economics professor Dan O'Flaherty, the odds of someone firing a gun and actually hitting another person is pretty low. And even if you do hit your target, there's only a 25% chance she'll die. Four things can increase the odds of shooting and killing someone:

1. Lots of training and practice to make you a better shot

2. Standing closer to the intended victim

3. Using a higher caliber weapon, which increases the likelihood of doing damage when you hit someone

4. Using a weapon that fires more bullets at once
