Six people shot across NYC in latest round of gun violence

Six people were shot across the city in separate incidents Tuesday and Wednesday, according to police — including an apparent carjacking suspect blasted by an off-duty police officer in Brooklyn.

In the most recent shooting, just before 11 a.m. on Tompkins Avenue near Pulaski Street in Bedford-Stuyvesant, a man was hit once in the left arm and once in the chest, cops said.

The victim was taken to the Kings County Hospital Center, the FDNY said.

No information on his condition or the circumstances of the shooting were immediately available.

Several hours earlier, an off-duty NYPD cop opened fire on a gunman who shot at him first during what appeared to be an attempted carjacking at East 87th Street and Foster Avenue in Canarsie around 2 a.m., authorities said.

The suspect was taken to Brookdale University Hospital Center with life-threatening injuries, according to NYPD Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison.

And a 28-year-old man was blasted in the upper back around 1:20 a.m. on West 131st Street near Frederick Douglass Boulevard, on the grounds of Harlem’s St. Nicholas Houses, cops said.

The circumstances were not immediately clear. He was taken to Harlem Hospital in stable condition.

On Tuesday alone, three people were shot in as many incidents, according to police.

One person was killed — 45-year-old Kimberly Grant, who was shot in the chest and groin by her ex-boyfriend on Chester Street near Livonia Avenue in Brownsville around 5:45 a.m., cops said.

Grant was taken to Brookdale University Hospital Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead about a half-hour later.

Her former flame, identified by cops as Leroy Worrell, later turned himself in at the 77th Precinct and was charged with murder.

The motive for the slaying remained unclear Wednesday morning.

The city saw far more shooting victims on Tuesday’s date in 2019 — a Sunday in which eight people in five separate incidents.

Overall, the city has seen a significant surge in shootings this year.

As of Tuesday, police counted 1,338 shootings involving 1,644 victims — more than double the victims tallied this time last year and nearly double the number of incidents.
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.
