NYC: One dead, six wounded in wild day of gunplay across the city

Seven people were shot — one fatally — as gunfire rang out across four boroughs over the stretch of a few hours Monday, cops said.

In the Bronx, a gunman shot a 27-year-old man in the head and chest on Andrews Ave. by W. 183rd St. in University Heights just after 8 p.m., killing him, cops said.

The shooter argued with his victim just before opening fire, but an NYPD spokesman couldn’t immediately say what the fight was about.

Twenty minutes later, police received reports of a shooting less than a mile away at Creston Ave. and E. 182nd St. in Fordham Heights.

They found a 21-year-old man shot in the arm there, while a second victim, a 32-year-old man, walked into Bronx Lebanon Hospital, with a gunshot to the leg.

Police couldn’t immediately say if the shootings were linked.

At about 8:50 p.m., police in Brooklyn responded to another shooting, finding a 29-year-old man shot in the back at Blake Ave. near Mother Gaston Blvd. in Brownsville, cops said. Medics took him to Brookdale University Hospital in stable condition.

Earlier in the day, police responded to two separate shootings in Manhattan and Queens.

At about 4 p.m., two teenage boys, ages 17 and 15, were shot on 110th St. at Park Ave. in East Harlem.

The older teen was shot in the leg, the younger teen in the back, cops said. Medics took both to a nearby hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
