NYC: Eight wounded in six overnight shootings across NYC

Eight people were wounded in six overnight shootings amid a surge in gun violence across the Big Apple, cops said. 

Most of the incidents occurred within about a two-hour period, with one earlier in the evening. 

Most recently, a 25-year-old man was sitting inside a car with a 33-year-old man on Williams Avenue near Livonia Avenue in Brownsville around 1:40 a.m. when a group of men approached and one started firing at their vehicle, according to police.

The younger man was grazed in the head and shot in the shoulder and hand, authorities said. 

The older man was not shot, but suffered a cut on his hand from broken glass. 

Both were taken to Brookdale University Hospital Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.
