Five men killed, two people wounded, including a teenager, in latest wave of shootings across city

2020-07-11

A fresh wave of shootings erupted across the city Sunday evening, leaving five men dead and two people wounded, including a 15-year-old boy, in three hours, amplifying an already-bloody Fourth of July weekend.

The teen, who was shot in the chest on Madison Ave. at E. 110th St. in East Harlem just before 6:45 p.m., was rushed to to Mt. Sinai-St. Luke’s Hospital in critical condition but was stabilized. He’s not cooperating with investigators, an NYPD spokesman said.

About an hour earlier, cops responded to two fatal shootings just three minutes apart in Brooklyn and the Bronx.

At 5:47 p.m., a 21-year-old man was shot in the chest on Christopher Ave. near Glenmore Ave. in Brownsville. He was taken to Brookdale Hospital, but he couldn’t be saved.


And at 5:50 p.m., a 29-year-old man standing outside a store on E. 170th St. at Sheridan Ave. in Mt. Eden was also shot in the chest. Medics took him to Bronx Care Health System, the former Bronx Lebanon Hospital, but didn’t survive the wound.

Later Sunday night, two men, ages 22 and 27, were killed and a third was wounded in an 8 p.m. barrage of gunfire in the Bronx in a building on E. 171st St. by College Ave., police said. The survivor, a 29-year-old man, was recovering in Lincoln Hospital from a gunshot wound to the arm.


Another man was shot dead in Staten Island’s Stapleton Houses at about 8:45 p.m. Cops responded to one of the buildings, on Gordon St. and Broad St., to find a 45-year-old man shot in the head.

Earlier in the day, police responded to gun violence at the Washington Houses on E. 99th St. at Second Ave. in Manhattan. The victim there — shot several times in an eighth-floor hallway at about 3:25 p.m. — managed to walk downstairs and across the street to Metropolitan Hospital, police said. He’s not cooperating with investigators, sources said.
