One killed, 6 injured in early morning shootings in NY

At least one person was killed and six wounded in separate shootings in the Big Apple Sunday, police said.

The bloody night began shortly after midnight in St. Albans, Queens, when cops found a 19-year-old unconscious with a gun wound to his left thigh, NYPD said.

The victim was transported to Jamaica Hospital, where he was declared dead.

Cops recovered two shell casings at the scene, including one from a stay bullet that hit the rear window of a vehicle parked nearby.

The assailant was a “stranger,” NYPD said.

The three men in Brooklyn, meanwhile — ages 33, 50 and 58 — were shot during a dispute outside the Super Deli Food on Fulton Street near Franklin Avenue around 1 p.m., according to NYPD.

It is not clear what provoked the incident, which left the 33- and 58-year-old men with injuries to their right feet and the third man wounded in his right knee.

The attacker fled on foot while his victims were sent to the hospital in stable condition.

Hours later in the Bronx at around 3:58 a.m., an unknown assailant fired on a restaurant at 1324 Jerome Avenue, the NYPD said. The shooter did not appear to hit his intended targets, police said — instead striking a 30-year-old man and 32-year-old woman.

“The perpetrator had been thrown out of the establishment earlier in the night and returned and fired rounds into the location from the street,” a police spokesman said.

The Brooklyn shooting was one of several late night shootings across New York City that resulted in six people getting injured and one person getting killed.

Both victims were reported to be in stable condition.

Shots rang out in the Bronx again an hour later at 180th Street and Webster Avenue, according to authorities.

Cops said an unknown shooter struck a 41-year-old man one in the arm and once in the torso, then took himself to a Queens hospital about three hours later.

A motive for the shooting was unclear, cops said.

There have been 795 shooting incidents so far this year — a 30 percent jump compared to 2020, according to NYPD stats.
