At least six shot across NYC overnight: cops

At least six people were shot in five separate incidents across the Big Apple overnight, cops said Tuesday.

Most recently, a 56-year-old man was taken by private means to Lincoln Medical Center with a gunshot wound to the torso minutes before 1 a.m., cops said.

It’s unclear when and where he was shot.

About a half-hour earlier, a 61-year-old man was shot in the back in the first-floor hallway of a building on Park Avenue near East 181st Street in the East Tremont neighborhood during a dispute with another man, police said.

He was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital in stable condition.

The suspect took off in a white SUV.

In Brooklyn, a 35-year-old man was blasted in the right leg on Newkirk Avenue near Jean-Jacques Dessalines Boulevard in Flatbush around 10:10 p.m. Monday during a squabble with another person, cops said.
