Three people were fatally gunned down and another two were wounded in four separate shootings across New York City on Sunday, according to police.
The disturbing rash of gun violence left a bloody trail across three boroughs and began shortly after 5 p.m. and ended close to midnight. Two teenagers were also among the multiple gunshot victims, with an 18-year-old man dying from his wounds.
The fatal victim, identified as Anwah Armbrister, and a 15-year-old girl were inside a building at 460 East 21st Street in Brooklyn when they were shot around 5:10 p.m., cops said. The pair stumbled outside and were found by first responders near the intersection of East 21st Street and Dorchester Road, police said.
The girl’s left shin was grazed by a bullet, but Armbrister suffered gunshot wounds to the head and chest, police said.
The Brooklyn resident was rushed to the Kings County Hospital and did not survive. The girl was treated at the same hospital and released.
Around the same time in the Bronx, a 35-year-old man was fatally shot in the torso after he was chased into a bodega on East 175th Street, police and law enforcement sources said. The victim was tracked down by two men on a scooter before one of the suspects fired inside the business, sources said.
The victim, identified as Bronx resident Cleveland Smith, was taken to Saint Barnabas Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Hours later, a 33-year-old man was fatally blasted in the chest around 11:45 p.m. at West 185th Street and St. Nicholas Avenue in Washington Heights, police said. He was brought to Harlem Hospital, but couldn’t be saved.
He has not been named by authorities pending family notification.
The non-fatal shooting Sunday night erupted around 6:45 p.m. when a 26-year-old man was shot in the right leg near 191st Street and St. Nicholas Avenue, also in Washington Heights, police said.
He was taken to New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center by private means and was listed in stable condition.
No arrests were made in any of the four shootings as the NYPD continues to investigate.
