New York City tallied 47 shootings last week ó a 176 percent spike compared to the 17 the city saw during the same period last year, police sources said Monday.

Fourteen murders are included in that figure, according to the sources. Last year, there were only five murders citywide during that time.

On Sunday alone, there were 15 shooting incidents across the city with 18 victims, compared to only two with two victims on the same day last year, police said. Seven murders were reported.

The fatal victims include a 16-year-old boy who was shot in the head at a basketball court in George Walker Jr. Park in Cypress Hills around 6:40 p.m.

An 18-year-old man who was also shot in the head during the same incident is listed in critical condition at Kings County Hospital Center, and another victim, 17, who was struck in the leg, was taken to Brookdale University Hospital Medical Center in stable condition.

Police sources say the suspect opened fire through the sunroof while driving by in a dark-colored SUV. The motive for the attack was not immediately known.

And about 20 minutes later in Flatbush, a 32-year-old man was shot and killed around 7 p.m. outside of an apartment building on East 16th Street, between Cortelyou and Dorchester roads, police said.

The gunplay continued around 11:30 p.m. when a 29-year-old man was shot in the foot after a dispute on Fulton Street near Jerome Street in Cypress Hills and taken to Brookdale with non-life-threatening injuries.

The male suspect took off after the incident, cops said.

On Saturday, the city saw six shooting incidents with six victims, compared to two incidents with four victims that day last year.

Eight shooting incidents with 10 victims occurred on Friday, compared to last yearís figure of five with five victims.

The violence continued into early Monday with five shootings over a three-hour period.

Around 12:30 a.m., a 25-year-old man was shot in the groin inside an apartment on Wayne Street near Campbell Avenue in the Edwin Markham Gardens area of Staten Island, police sources said.

An hour later, a 25-year-old man was blasted on the stomach on Clay Avenue in the Claremont section of the Bronx, according to the sources. He was approached by two suspects when one of them suddenly pulled out a gun and shot him.

Meanwhile, a 22-year-old man was shot in the stomach on Fairmount Place near Prospect Avenue in the Bronx around 2:10 a.m., and a 33-year-old man was shot in the neck on West 125th Street near Amsterdam Avenue in Harlem less than an hour later.

Shots rang out in East Harlem around 3:45 a.m., when a 25-year-old man was struck in the lower back on East 106th Street near Third Avenue.

All of the victims suffered non-life threatening injuries.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
