NYC overnight shootings leave 6 injured, 1 dead



Bullets flew overnight killing a driver in Harlem — and leaving five others wounded across the city, police said Sunday.

The 55-year-old man was in a 2017
Dodge Ram when he was shot five times at 147th Street and Frederick Douglass Boulevard around 3:30 a.m., cops said.

The man, whose identity wasn’t released, had a last known address in Maine, cops said. He was rushed to Harlem Hospital but couldn’t be saved.

“It seem pretty intentional when you shoot somebody five times,” a police source said.

There were no immediate arrests.

A 22-year-old man and an 18-year-old were shot as they travelled on a motor scooter in front of 951 Adee Avenue in the Bronx around 1 a.m., cops said. The shooter rolled up next to their scooter in a late model BMW and started firing, according to police.

The older man suffered a gunshot wound to the head and was in critical condition, cops said. The teenager was shot in the leg and expected to survive.

There were no immediate arrests in the double shooting.

The first overnight shooting happened just after midnight in the Bronx when a 40-year-old man was shot in the leg during a dispute, cops said.

The man was shot at 680 Balcom Avenue and was rushed to Jacobi Hospital in stable condition.

Police took a person of interest into custody, and charges were pending. It wasn’t clear what the argument was over.

A short time later, at around 12:20 a.m. a man walked into Montefiore Hospital in the Bronx with a gunshot wound to the right thigh, police said. He told cops he was shot at Nereid Avenue and Matilda Avenue in Wakefield.

The sixth man was shot around 4:30 a.m. in front of 229th Street and 115th Road in Queens, cops said. The 30-year-old was struck once in the chest and taken to Jamaica Hospital in critical condition.
