The total was up from 16,669 in 2019, according to the FBI, one of the sharpest increases in murders in several years. The national homicide rate, 6.5 per 100,000 people, is still lower than it was during much of the 1990s.

"That's an unprecedented one-year rise," said Richard Rosenfeld, a criminology professor at the University of Missouri-St. Louis.

NYC security guard stabbed over mask dispute at Apple Store: authorities
Source: The Hill
A security guard at an Apple Store in New York City was stabbed on Friday evening by a male customer over a dispute on the store’s masking policy, police say, according to ABC7 New York.

A 37-year-old security guard was stabbed multiple times around 6:30 p.m. on Friday after a customer was told that masks had to be worn if he wanted to go inside, police said.

The interaction dissolved into violence after the man refused to wear a mask, and the two exchanged words. After their exchange, the man pulled out a sharp object, and the security guard was stabbed. The suspect had already left the scene by the time police arrived at the Manhattan location on West 14th Street, according to NBC New York.

The guard, who was stabbed in multiple places on his body, is expected to recover from his injuries after he was taken to Bellevue Hospital, according to ABC7. The guard's identity was also not made clear.
