Over three dozen shot, two killed overnight on violent July 4th weekend in NYC: cops

Over 30 people were shot overnight in the city — 14 of them in northern Manhattan, police sources said.

The NYPD wasn’t able to immediately provide the number of shootings, but confirmed that at least 10 people had been shot — two fatally — overnight.

A 20-year-old man was shot in the chest at 12:43 a.m. in East New York, Brooklyn, cops said. The man, who was shot on Atkins Avenue near Pitkin Avenue, was rushed to Brookdale Hospital Medical Center but couldn’t be saved. His identity wasn’t immediately released.

Then, at 2:40 a.m. a 23-year-old man was shot in the back on 116th Street near Morningside Park in Harlem, cops said. He was taken to St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital by private means.

He was uncooperative when interviewed by police and then died, according to an NYPD spokesman.

Investigators were canvassing for ballistic evidence and video. His name was being withheld pending family notification.

Details about the other shootings overnight weren’t immediately available.

The July shootings come on the heels of a violent June in the city. With a total of 205 shootings during the month, it was the bloodiest June in 24 years — going back to 1996, when the NYPD logged 236 incidents, the NYPD said.
