Overnight NYC shootings leave 8 hurt, 2 critically


Eight people were hurt — two critically — in at least six shootings that erupted across the Big Apple overnight, authorities said. 

Some of the bloody gun violence involved a dispute inside the Mamajuana Café on East Tremont Avenue near Puritan Avenue in Pelham Bay in The Bronx around 3:15 a.m. Friday, cops said. 

A 25-year-old man was shot twice in the stomach during the fight and taken to Jacobi Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries, police said. 

Two more men, ages 19 and 30, were wounded in the same incident and walked into the hospital, cops said. 

The 30-year-old man, who was shot twice in the chest and once in the right leg, is listed in critical condition.

The 19-year-old man, who was shot twice in the stomach, is listed in stable condition and described as highly uncooperative, police said.

A 30-year-old suspect in the shooting fled on foot into Flushing Cemetery, and the victim was taken to NewYork-Presbyterian Queens Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, police said. 

A little over an hour earlier, a 35-year-old man walked into Harlem Hospital with a gunshot wound to his right leg, cops said.

He was described as highly uncooperative, and police did not have information on where the incident occurred. 

And just after 9 p.m. in the Claremont section of the Bronx, a 33-year-old man was shot in the buttocks at the corner of Washington Avenue and Claremont Parkway, cops said.

The gunman fled on an e-bike, and the victim went to St. Barnabas Hospital in stable condition.

Earlier in the evening, a 27-year-old pregnant woman was shot in the neck inside a Lower East Side apartment on Madison Street, part of NYCHA’s Vladeck Houses, cops said. 

The 28-year-old suspect — who cops say is known to the victim — shot her around 8:15 p.m., cops said.
