Seven people wounded in separate shootings across NYC

Seven people were wounded in separate shooting incidents across the city Monday and Tuesday, authorities said.

Most recently, a 27-year-old man walked into NewYork-Presbyterian/The Allen Hospital in Inwood around 1 a.m. Tuesday with a gunshot wound to the leg, cops said.

He’s described as uncooperative and wouldn’t provide cops with any information on what happened.

About 45 minutes earlier, a 22-year-old man was shot once in the stomach and once in the shoulder at Starling and Castle Hill avenues in the Westchester Square neighborhood of the Bronx, police sources said.

He was taken to NYC Health + Hospitals/Jacobi in stable condition, but was rushed into surgery, so he couldn’t talk to cops about what happened, the sources said.

Investigators found one fired bullet on the scene.

Around 11:20 p.m. Monday, a 23-year-old man was struck in the arm on Olmstead Avenue near Lacombe Avenue on the grounds of the Castle Hill Houses in the Bronx, cops said.

He was taken to Jacobi with non-life-threatening injuries.

The male suspect took off in a white sedan, cops said.

The other shootings came early Monday morning.

In total on Monday, five people were shot in five separate incidents, according to preliminary numbers released by police.

On that day in 2019, four people were shot in four separate incidents.
