The bloodshed on the streets of the Big Apple continued Saturday, with two people – one critical – shot dead in separate incidents in the Bronx, police said.
A man in his 20s was shot in the head around 1:30 p.m. while riding a motor scooter on East 156th Street and Melrose Avenue, police said.
Two gunmen in a gray SUV driving alongside the victim jumped out of the vehicle and opened fire, police officers said.
The victim was taken to Lincoln Hospital in critical condition and was fighting for his life, the NYPD said. The suspected gunmen sped away in the SUV and there were no immediate arrests.
Less than an hour later, at around 2:20 p.m., police reported a man shot dead at West 171st Street and Ogden Avenue in the Mount Eden neighborhood. Further information was not immediately available.
The holiday weekend got off to an ominous start when one person was killed and at least seven others injured – including a 15-year-old boy – in a series of shootings in New York City overnight through Saturday.
