At least six people — including two teens — were shot in separate incidents across the Big Apple overnight, cops said.
The youngest victim was a 17-year-old boy who was blasted in the back around 10:15 p.m. Sunday during a dispute at Frederick Douglass Boulevard and West 120th Street in Harlem, cops said.
He was taken to Harlem Hospital in stable condition.
Shortly before 1 a.m. Monday, an 18-year-old woman was shot in the back when someone fired rounds from a car at Beekman Avenue and St. Mary’s Street, near St. Mary’s Park, in Mott Haven, police said.
It was unclear whether the victim — who was taken to Lincoln Medical Center in stable condition — was the intended target.
In Queens, a 35-year-old man was left clinging to life after he was shot on 90th Street near Park Lane South around 11:30 p.m. Sunday in Woodhaven, cops said.
He was taken to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center in critical condition.
The circumstances of that shooting were unclear.
In Harlem, two apparently unrelated shootings occurred about an hour apart at the same intersection, cops said.
A 43-year-old man was grazed in the head around 11:50 p.m. at West 143rd Street and Malcolm X Boulevard, police said.
A red vehicle fled the scene, and the victim simply reported hearing shots and feeling pain, authorities said.
He was taken to Harlem Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Around 12:45 a.m. Monday, a 21-year-old man was blasted in the left calf in front of 135 West 143rd Street, cops said.
He, too, went to Harlem Hospital and is also listed in stable condition. He was described as uncooperative.
About 15 minutes later, a 25-year-old man was struck in the right side of the neck during a dispute at Mount Eden and Topping avenues near Claremont Park in Claremont Park, police said.
He was taken to Lincoln Medical Center by private means with non-life-threatening injuries.
The latest series of gunplay comes as NYPD data on Monday showed 43 shootings between May 17 through Sunday — a 72 percent spike compared to 25 incidents during the same period last year.
The Big Apple is also seeing an 80 percent surge in gun violence with 531 shootings recorded this year versus 295 in 2020, the CompStat data shows.
Meanwhile, bullets also flew overnight in Suffolk County, leaving seven people in hurt in separate incidents, authorities said.
Several people were gathered near the basketball courts at the Bay Shore Marina on South Clinton Avenue around 8:30 p.m. when gunshots were fired in their direction from outside the park, cops said.
Four of the people — a 19-year-old woman, two 22-year-old men and a 23-year-old man — were struck by one shot each. They were treated for non-life-threatening injuries at a local hospital.
Then around 12:30 a.m. Monday in Huntington Station, someone in a passing car opened fire on a small group of people outside a home on 11th Avenue between West 11th Street and Norden Lane, police said.
Three men — two 22-year-olds and one 25-year-old — were taken to a local hospital by their friends, cops said. Their injuries were also non-life-threatening.
