At least 16 people were wounded in a series of shootings across the Big Apple in about a two-hour span on Sunday night — including eight struck in one incident on the grounds of a Brooklyn public housing complex, authorities said.
The bloodshed began minutes before 11 p.m. Sunday when three men were struck by gunfire on Westgate Street near 140th Avenue in Springfield Gardens, according to cops.
A 20-year-old man was shot in the right shoulder, a 23-year-old man in the left leg and a 27-year-old man shot in the lower back, police said. All three were taken to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center in stable condition.
About 40 minutes later, another man, 32, was shot on Nostrand Avenue near Park Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, cops said.
