At least 16 people were wounded in a series of shootings across the Big Apple in about a two-hour span on Sunday night — including eight struck in one incident on the grounds of a Brooklyn public housing complex, authorities said.
The bloodshed began minutes before 11 p.m. Sunday when three men were struck by gunfire on Westgate Street near 140th Avenue in Springfield Gardens, according to cops.
A 20-year-old man was shot in the right shoulder, a 23-year-old man in the left leg and a 27-year-old man shot in the lower back, police said. All three were taken to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center in stable condition.
About 40 minutes later, another man, 32, was shot on Nostrand Avenue near Park Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, cops said.
He is also listed in stable condition.
Then around 12:15 a.m. Monday, a 20-year-old man was shot in the face during a traffic dispute on 101st Avenue near 90th Street in Ozone Park, Queens, police said.
He was taken to the Kings County Hospital Center, also with non-life-threatening injuries.
Back in Bedford-Stuyvesant, eight people — five women and three men — were shot on Dekalb Avenue near Marcus Garvey Boulevard, on the grounds of NYCHA’s Roosevelt Houses, around 12:30 a.m., according to sources.
“We have a large group of people gathered in front of 927 DeKalb listening to music,” NYPD Deputy Chief John Chell said during an early-morning press conference. “We have approximately two shooters that come off of Pulaski Street, and fire into this crowd.”
A 22-year-old woman was grazed in the nose, two women, 21 and 19, shot in the thigh, an 18-year-old woman struck in the shoulder, another 18-year-old woman hit in the stomach, two men, 23 and 27, shot in the shoulder, and an 18-year-old man blasted in the right hip, authorities said.
All were taken to area hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries.
The story goes on and on, detailing the city’s shootings on Sunday night.
Perhaps most savagely, on the same night, a man was attacked with a hatchet while using an ATM. The NY Post reports:
A 51-year-old man was attacked by a hatchet-wielding maniac in the ATM vestibule of a Lower Manhattan bank Sunday night, police sources said.
The male suspect whacked the victim in the head and thigh as he was standing in front of the cash machine at a Chase bank on Broadway near Beaver Street in the Financial District at about 5:20 p.m., sources said.
The brute fled after the attack, but left the hatchet behind, according to the sources. He was still being sought late Sunday.
“The guy that got hit in the head was screaming,” a witness told The Post.
“It’s crazy. People were shouting and we saw the guy laying down — a lot of blood,” the witness said.
Action Line: The riots and chaos of Summer 2020 showed criminals that mayors like Bill De Blasio aren’t going to stand up to them. Now they are running the cities. Escape the city today. And if your city allows it, get your gun and your training now.
