Woman fatally shot, brother hurt amid bloody night in NYC

A 29-year-old woman was fatally shot and her brother hurt in a Bronx shooting — amid a bloody night of gun violence in the Big Apple that left two others dead and at least five more wounded, according to police. 

Katherine Diop, 29, was with her 31-year-old brother, who was fighting with another person at East 194th Street and Marion Avenue in Fordham Manor around 11:25 p.m. Wednesday, cops said. 

As the siblings walked away from the scuffle, Diop’s brother’s rival opened fire, authorities said.

Diop was struck in the torso, and her brother was hit multiple times, police said. 

Both victims were taken to St. Barnabas Hospital, where Diop was pronounced dead and her brother is listed in stable condition. 

No arrests have been made.
