Overnight NYC shootings leave at least 3 people injured: cops

At least three people were hurt — one critically — in separate overnight shootings across the city, cops said Monday.

A man was shot in the head on Ryer Avenue near East 183rd Street in the Fordham Heights section of the Bronx around 8:50 p.m. Sunday, cops said. 

He was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital with life-threatening injuries — and the two suspects fled on a moped, authorities said.
