Nearly four dozen people were marred by shootings over the weekend — as Gotham recorded its 12th consecutive week of surging gun violence, according to authorities.
One of the latest people to fall victim to gunplay was a 34-year-old who was shot in the chest in Brooklyn just after 10:30 p.m. Sunday and died shortly later at Brookdale Hospital, police said.
The man, whose name was not released, was shot near the NYCHA Howard Houses at 280 Stone Ave. in Brownsville, cops said.
That bloodshed was the first of six shootings over the next few hours across New York City.
About an hour later, a 46-year-old man was shot in the leg near Dorchester Road and Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn, police said. The man is expected to recover after being taken to Kings County Hospital.
A 53-year-old man was struck in the leg just after midnight Monday in The Bronx at 2134 Vyse Avenue, police said. His injuries were not life-threatening.
Over in East Flatbush, a man was shot in the buttocks near the corner of E. 93rd Street and E. New York Avenue just after 12:15 a.m., police said. He was taken to King County Hospital and is expected to survive.
About 15 minutes later, a 26-year-old man was hit in the left arm and a 45-year-old man had his right arm grazed by a bullet outside at 660 Gates Ave. in Bedford-Stuyvessant, cops said. Both were in stable condition Monday morning.
In Chelsea, a domestic dispute between a 35-year-old man and a 41-year-old turned violent when she shot him in the leg and wrist around 1 a.m. inside an apartment at Sixth Avenue and East 25th Street, cops said.
The man was expected to survive.
The woman, whose name was not released, was taken into custody on pending charges, cops said.
The overnight violence closed out a bloody weekend.
Police reported 35 shootings with 45 gun violence victims from Friday through Sunday, according to NYPD data.
The uptick in gunplay has continued for 12 consecutive weeks in New York City — with police data showing at least 350 more shootings, 460 more victims and 70 more murders compared to the same time last year.
The last time New York City saw its shootings totals flat was the last week in May.
When asked about the trend Monday on Fox5, Police Commissioner Dermot Shea echoed City Hall’s talking point of referring to the gunplay as a “perfect storm” but offered no concrete details of how the police plan to curb the bloodshed.
“We need to take a look at where we are right now because this, I think we would all agree, is not really working,” Shea said.
