Five people were hurt in overnight shootings across the city, the NYPD said.
The most recent incident occurred in Brooklyn shortly after 3 a.m. Saturday, when a 34-year-old man was shot in the face on Glenmore and Sheffield avenues in East New York, cops said. The incident erupted after a dispute with an unknown assailant dressed in black, police said. The victim was taken to Brookdale Hospital in stable condition.
About 20 minutes earlier, a 21-year-old man was shot in the hip when he tried to get into a Bronx house party on West Mosholu Parkway North, near Knox Place, in Norwood, cops said.
Someone didn’t want the would-be party goer there, and fired off a shot from a stairwell, said police, who added that the victim was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital in stable condition.
The latest wave of bloodshed started in the Bronx at 11:15 p.m. Friday, when an 18-year-old man was shot in the left thigh on the third floor of the Moore Houses on Jackson Avenue, near St. Mary’s Park in Mott Haven. The victim was taken to Lincoln Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
An hour later, at 12:15 a.m. Saturday, two people were shot inside the 4/5/6 line subway station at East 125th Street and Lexington Avenue in East Harlem, police said. A 21-year-old man was hit in the right leg, and both arms, and a second person was shot in the stomach, cops said. Both men were taken to Harlem Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and the shooter remains at large. Police did not say what sparked the gunfire.
