NYC: Three people shot across NYC as gunplay continues to spike: cops

Three people were shot across Gotham on Thursday, according to preliminary numbers released by cops Friday, including a woman collecting cans.

A 46-year-old man was popped in the foot on Euclid Avenue near Etna Street in Cypress Hills just before 5 p.m., cops said. He was taken to Brookdale University Hospital Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

The shooting happened during an attempted robbery involving two suspects, one of whom fired the shot, according to police sources.

Earlier in the day, a 40-year-old man was shot, also in the foot, on Myrtle Avenue near Marcus Garvey Boulevard around 10:30 a.m. in Stuyvesant Heights, the sources said.
