A 16-year-old boy was shot dead in Brooklyn late Sunday, police said.
The victim was shot in the legs and lower back around 10:50 p.m. on Albany Avenue near Glenwood Road in East Flatbush, authorities said.
He reported hearing gunshots and feeling pain and was taken to Kings County Hospital Center, where his condition was stable.
Whether he was the intended target was unclear on Monday morning.
The shooting took place hours after 48-year-old Daniel Enriquez was arbitrarily shot dead on a Manhattan-bound Q train approaching Canal Street, police officers said.
At least two other teenagers were shot dead over the weekend – including an 18-year-old man who was shot twice in the head and killed around 11pm on Saturday at W Avenue and Batchelder Street in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn.
A 17-year-old girl was shot in the face at a party in the Bronx around 1 a.m. Sunday, police said.
The girl was at 500 Trinity Avenue when a person shot into the crowd. The bullet went through her right temple and came out of her left nostril, police officers said.
She was taken to Lincoln Hospital in stable condition, police said.
