Default Re: NYC TNB - Seven people shot in three separate incidents across NYC


Seven people shot in three separate incidents across NYC: cops

Seven people were shot — one fatally — in three separate incidents across Gotham Wednesday and Thursday, cops said.

Most recently, a 27-year-old man was shot by a gunman who swiped his backpack on East 156th Street near Trinity Avenue in the Melrose section of the Bronx around 12:15 a.m. Thursday, cops said.

The victim was sitting in a car when the suspect went up to the window with a gun and demanded property, police said.

As he grabbed the backpack, he pistol-whipped the man — and the weapon discharged at least three times, striking the victim in the neck and shoulder, cops said. It was unclear whether the gunman meant for the weapon to go off, cops said.

The victim was taken to Lincoln Medical Center in stable condition.

On Wednesday, two shootings were reported — one of them fatal.

That incident happened around 10:40 p.m. inside an illegal social club on Hegeman Avenue near Osborn Street in Brownsville.

A 58-year-old man was killed and three others — 31, 32 and 44 — were wounded when gunfire erupted during a large fight inside the building, also known as a hotspot for illegal gambling, according to cops and police sources.

And around 9:30 p.m. in Queens, a 20-year-old man and a 19-year-old woman were each struck in the elbow during a drive-by shooting at North Conduit Avenue and 122nd Street in the Wakefield neighborhood, cops said.

A man in a dark-colored sedan fired off multiple rounds, striking the pair, according to police.

It is unclear whether either victim was the intended target. Both were taken to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center in stable condition.

On Wednesday’s date in 2019, there were also two shootings, but with only two victims, police said.
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.
