At least three people were shot in gunplay across the Big Apple overnight, cops said.
In Brooklyn, a 39-year-old man was shot in the back outside Nostrand Avenue near Herkimer Street in Bedford-Stuyvesant at about 6:15 a.m., police said. The victim was taken to Kings County Hospital in stable condition, according to an NYPD spokesman.
Less than 30 minutes earlier in the Bronx, a 25-year-old man was shot in the left leg on Wheeler Avenue, near Elder Avenue, police said. The circumstances behind the shooting were “unclear,” cops said, and the victim was taken to Jacobi Medical Center by private means.
Another shooting occurred at about 1:35 a.m. Saturday when a 43-year-old man was shot in the right hip along Morris Avenue in the Bronx, police said. The victim told police he heard gunshots and then felt pain. He was transported to Lincoln Hospital in stable condition, cops said.
There are no arrests in any of the shootings, police said.
