Murders up 30 percent in New York City this year
By Sara Dorn
March 9, 2019 | 9:56pm | Updated

Just five hours after the ball dropped in Times Square, a masked shooter in East New York pulled out a gun and blasted 29-year-old Tyleek White as he stood in the hallway of the Stanley Avenue Pink Houses.

It was the city’s first murder of 2019, the end of an unprecedented four-month streak without a single homicide in the notoriously bloody 75th Precinct.

And the beginning of an alarming uptick in killings across the city.

The 2019 citywide body count is up to 55, a 30-percent increase from the same period in 2018, when the NYPD recorded 289 murders, the fewest in 70 years.

Cops have yet to determine what prompted 23 of the slayings, and they’ve filed charges in just 18 of the cases, according to police stats and department statements reviewed by The Post.

Ten of the deaths occurred before 2019, but were classified as murders after Jan. 1.

White’s killer, for example, is still at large.

“I think we are looking at a new troubling trend,” warned John Jay College professor Joe Giacalone, who has observed NYC homicides drop 677 percent in the last 38 years from the bloody peak of 2,245 murders in 1990.

“The NYPD has to get their hands around exactly what is going on, because if this is a drug or gang war — these are the things you need to worry about as the weather warms up.”

Added the former NYPD sergeant: “It’s unusual in the cold weather you would have such a spike. It makes you scratch your head. If we are having a spike in January and February, oh boy.”

According to cops, 15 of the homicides this year were gang-related, 12 were domestic incidents, and five involved drug deals.

Victims included a cop, a pregnant woman, a cab driver, two elderly women, and five teens. They ranged in age from 14 to 75.

Twenty-five of the deaths were caused by guns, 13 involved a stabbing or slashing, and four were from bludgeoning.

Bystanders caught in crossfire included the little girl who ran as bullets whizzed past her on a Bronx sidewalk recently.

“[These] are the things that keep police chiefs up at night,” Giacalone said.

He said “progressive” policies, like the state’s new Raise the Age law that ends automatic prosecution of 16- and 17-year-olds as adults, and the Department of Education’s lax punishment policies, embolden young gangsters.

“You’ve created this perfect policy storm for things to get out of control quickly,” he said.

Two men fatally gunned down in separate incidents in Queens

By Ruth Weissmann
April 13, 2019 | 8:57am | Updated

Two men were shot and killed just hours apart in separate incidents in Queens early Saturday, police said.

A 26-year-old man was fatally shot in the chest at about 2 a.m. by a man in a blue hooded sweatshirt after the victim began brawling with a group of people at the intersection of National Street and Roosevelt Avenue in Corona.

The shooter then fled the scene, police said. The victim was taken to Elmhurst Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Just four hours later, on Guy R. Brewer Boulevard near 108th Ave in Jamaica, cops found a 48-year-old male dead in the passenger seat of a black Nissan Maxima, authorities said. He had been shot in the arm and torso.

The victim was pronounced dead at about 6:00 a.m. at Jamaica Hospital.

No arrests have been made, and the investigations are ongoing.

Pair of shootings in Brooklyn leave 1 dead, 5 injured
By Kenneth Garger
May 27, 2019 | 10:33pm | Updated May 28, 2019 | 9:13am

One person was killed and five others injured in two separate Brooklyn shootings just hours apart on Monday night, police said.

Three men were struck in the first shooting at about 6:50 p.m. at a cookout outside NYCHA’s Pink Houses on Hemlock Street and Stanley Avenue in East New York, cops said.

One of the victims, a 42-year-old man, was shot in the neck and head and rushed to Brookdale Hospital but he could not be saved, police said early Tuesday. His identity was not immediately released pending family notification.

Another man, 34, was shot in the arm while sitting in a car near the scene, cops said. He drove off before being pulled over a few blocks away near Linden Boulevard and Eldert Lane.

He was taken in stable condition to Brookdale Hospital — where a third victim, 46, walked in with a gunshot wound to his torso, according to police.

A handgun was recovered near the scene, police sources said.

Three teenagers were shot just before 9 p.m. at St. Andrew’s Playground in Bedford-Stuyvesant, cops said.

One of the victims, a 19-year-old man, was shot in the shoulder and walked a block away to Interfaith Medical Center.

Another 19-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy were both shot in their right leg and taken to Kings County Hospital, cops said.

All three teens are expected to survive.

Police are looking for two male suspects — one wearing all black and one with a white hooded sweater – in connection to the second shooting.

Bloody night in Brooklyn as multiple shootings, stabbing reported
By Stephanie Pagones
June 8, 2019 | 12:25pm

A woman was shot through the window of her Brooklyn home early Saturday as violence erupted throughout the borough overnight, police said.

The 49-year-old was inside her home on Putnam Avenue near Claver Place in Bedford-Stuyvesant around 3 a.m. when she heard a knock at her window.

When she looked out, a stranger opened fire through the window, shooting her twice in the left shoulder and once in the arm, cops said.

The woman was rushed to NewYork-Presbyterian/Brooklyn Methodist Hospital, where she is expected to survive.

Less than two hours earlier, around 1:15 a.m., a 46-year-old man was shot in the left leg as he was walking in front of The Universal Church, just a block over on Fulton Street, police said.

The victim took himself to Brooklyn Hospital for his non-life threatening injury, but was highly uncooperative with police, sources said.

Around 10:25 p.m. Friday, a 23-year-old woman and a 24-year-old man were shot following a fight near the corner of Lexington and Tompkins avenues, also in Bed-Stuy and just a few doors down from the NYPD’s 79th Precinct station house.

The suspect was described as an 18- to 20-year-old man wearing a red bandana. He fled on a bicycle.

Both victims were taken to Kings County Hospital in stable condition, cops said.

Hours later around 6 a.m., a 39-year-old man was stabbed in the shoulder and arm following a fight near Flatbush Avenue and Empire Boulevard, just outside Prospect Park, police said.

He was taken to Kings County Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, cops said. The pair of male attackers fled on bikes.

Shootings, stabbings mark bloody night in Big Apple
By Georgett Roberts, Kevin Fasick and Ruthie Weissmann
June 8, 2019 | 7:35pm | Updated


Charles Reynoso was gunned down in Washington Heights at 5 a.m.


The weekend got off to an especially bloody start with three people killed and more than a dozen others either shot or stabbed throughout the Big Apple, police said.

In all, nine people were shot Friday in separate incidents in Brooklyn, Manhattan and the Bronx, including three men in Brownsville; two in Bedford-Stuyvesant; two men in the northern Bronx; one in East New York and a woman in East Harlem.

One of the Bronx victims was a 35-year-old man who was fatally shot in the chest.

The violence kept up even after midnight struck, with two people murdered in separate cases in Manhattan and Queens.

Charles Reynoso was gunned down just a week shy of his 25th birthday around 5 a.m. on West 166th Street near Amsterdam Avenue, police said.

“He’s going to be 25 next Sunday,” his aunt, Annie Fernandez, 39, said through tears.

Reynoso, of Bed-Stuy, was shot in the head during a dispute with approximately five men, who then fled the scene in a black car, police said.

He was rushed to Columbia Presbyterian, but could not be saved. Police are still looking for his attackers.

About 35 minutes before Reynoso was killed, a family squabble turned fatal in Rochdale, Queens, where Terrell Coleman, 30, was stabbed in the head and torso by his 41-year-old uncle.

“I heard the noise,” recalled Edna Edwards, 94, who lives on the floor below. “I heard thumping on the floor, stomping shouting.”

Coleman, who police sources said had a history of mental illness, was pronounced dead at Jamaica Hospital Medical, police said. His uncle — identified by police sources as Eric Coleman — had not been charged as of 4:30 p.m. Saturday.

Two more people were shot and another was stabbed in Brooklyn on Saturday, according to authorities. Each victim survived.

One of those victims had an eery tale to tell.

The 49-year-old woman told cops she was inside her Putnam Avenue home around 3 a.m. when she heard a knock at the window — when she looked out, a stranger opened fire.

The victim was struck twice in the left shoulder and once in the arm, and taken to New York-Presbyterian/Brooklyn Methodist Hospital in stable condition.

“I was half asleep,” recalled a neighbor who asked to remain anonymous, but said he can see the victim’s backyard from his own window. “It’s a clear shot for sound. I heard two shots.”

“Something about summer,” he continued. “When the weather gets hotter more guns (and niggers) come out.”

Innocent bystanders are being shot in NYC at an alarming rate
By Tina Moore
June 13, 2019 | 9:03pm | Updated



June is only half over, and already this month seven innocent bystanders have been struck by bullets, two fatally, around the city.

The four-borough fusillade — only Staten Island was unscathed — included a 7-year-old boy injured in the Bronx and a 15-year-old girl shot in Brooklyn.

Two elderly Queens women, ages 74 and 82, were grazed by slugs from an AK-47-style rifle after the military-grade ammo penetrated their kitchen wall, a high-ranking source told The Post.

And it was a second long gun, this one an M1 carbine rifle firing .30-caliber rounds, that claimed the life of Winston McKay, 40, who was hit as he walked his dog on a pre-dawn Monday morning in Harlem, the source said.

“It’s two shootings with a long gun within a week,” the high-ranking source told The Post, noting that pistols typically account for the vast majority of gunfire in the city.

Bullets from both the M1 and the AK-47 can penetrate walls, doors, cars and bulletproof vests, the source noted, calling the weapons “very lethal.”

“It’s terrible that somebody has those guns on the street, and they’re brazen enough to walk around with that . . . There’s no reason in the world that anyone should have them,” the source said.

“They’re not even hunting guns,” the source added. “They’re meant to kill military combatants.”

Queens victims Mavis Claggett, 82, and Beulah Clark, 74, survived the June 5 shooting only because the AK-47 ammo that struck them had been slowed by Claggett’s kitchen wall in Laurelton.

“The women were lucky they didn’t die,” the source said.

Three suspects have now been busted in the six shootings, after two men who allegedly traded gunfire in the incident that wounded the 7-year-old were arrested, police said Thursday.

Kamal Dockery, 17, is facing weapons and endangerment charges for allegedly accidentally shooting a 47-year-old woman 10 blocks from his Harlem address.

The most recent victim, Angela Saltarelli, suffered a deep graze wound to her left arm near the Pelham Parkway Houses on Wednesday within a block of a school.

“I just think that the government is not doing a very good job with the gun control,” Saltarelli, 39, told The Post on Thursday.

She said she’d been walking a neighbor’s little boy to school when she heard what she thought were fireworks.

“I heard two shots, and I thought, ‘Oh, my God, these people are starting fireworks already.'”

Then, “I looked down and saw all the blood gushing out,” she said.

“A few good Samaritans came and wrapped a belt around it to stop the bleeding.”

Police took her statement at the hospital, she said, but have not questioned her since.
