New York City just went through 11 days without a homicide, a record according to the NYPD.

It would have been a 12th day on Friday if not for a midday shooting in Woodhaven, Queens.

When “CBS This Morning” anchor Charlie Rose asked Police Commissioner Bill Bratton about the record — hours before the Queens slay, he responded: “Shhh … we don’t want to jinx it.”

The record had been hit hours earlier, at midnight Thursday.

There hadn’t been a killing in the city since Super Bowl Sunday (Feb. 1), near City College in Hamilton Heights. Five people were shot in that incident, one fatally — Graham Shadale, 28.

In Friday’s Woodhaven killing, 28-year-old Eric Roman was found with gunshot wounds to his head and body at his home at 91-35 89th St.

There have been no arrests in either case.
