NYC: Four shot, one fatally, overnight in Brooklyn, the Bronx: cops

Four people were shot overnight — including one fatally — as gun violence continued in Brooklyn and the Bronx, cops said. 

The most recent shooting came at 1:25 a.m. Monday, when a 16-year-old boy was struck in the left arm in the Belmont section of the Bronx, cops said. 

The teen was walking on Belmont Avenue near East 188th Street when a gray sedan pulled up next to him and someone started firing in his direction, according to police sources. 

He tried to get away, but the motorist caught up to him and opened fire again, the sources said. 

The victim was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital in stable condition.

Around 12:35 a.m., a 31-year-old man showed up at the Kings County Hospital Center emergency room in Brooklyn with a gunshot wound to the chest, cops said.
