At least 13 people were shot during a bloody stretch through NYC on Independence Day

One person was killed and at least 12 others injured in a series of shootings in New York City during a bloody nine-hour stretch on Independence Day, police said.

Only the Staten Island County escaped the violence, which began around 3:10 p.m. in Queens when a gunman opened fire on a man in his 30s.

The victim was found in the middle of the street in Cambria Heights with a gunshot wound to the hip. He was taken to Long Island Jewish Hospital in critical but stable condition, the NYPD said.

About two hours later, the boyfriend of an NYPD employee was shot and wounded in Soho while sitting in a gray Honda sedan outside a Dior luxury store, law enforcement sources said.

The 27-year-old was shot in the right forearm and taken to a nearby hospital by his girlfriend. He should live, said the police.

Less than an hour later at 5:50 p.m. in the Bronx, a gunman approached a 24-year-old man near 775 Eagle Ave. in Melrose, shot him in the left leg and fled, the NYPD said.

The victim was in stable condition at Lincoln Hospital.

He was also taken to Lincoln Hospital in stable condition, police said.

About two hours later, a man was shot in the neck a block above Central Park in Manhattan. He was taken to Harlem Hospital in stable condition. Police said the victim was uncooperative and would not provide details of how he was shot.

Back in the Bronx, three men were shot dead by a gunman who fled Belmont in a white sedan around 10:30 p.m. One was shot in the chest and died at St Barnabas Hospital. Another was shot in the leg and a third in the arm. The two surviving victims are in stable condition at St. Barnabas. Police said it was unclear if they were targeted.

A final person was shot just before the end of the holidays. A man was shot dead on Bainbridge Street in Brooklyn just before midnight, police said.

No arrests were reported in any of the shootings.
