Six men were shot dead overnight in the city – including a teenager who died and a victim who was hit by a stray bullet, police said on Sunday.
The dead 19-year-old, whose identity was not immediately released, was found dead during an argument outside 3761 10th Ave. near 202nd St. in Inwood, Manhattan, shot in the left leg just before 11 p.m. Saturday, police officers said.
He was taken to Harlem Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said. The nature of the dispute was unknown.
About three hours earlier, a 26-year-old man in Manhattan was struck by a stray bullet from a gunman who fled on a scooter, police officers said.
The victim was near 60 E. 135th St. in East Harlem when he was shot in the right leg, police said. He was taken to Harlem Hospital in stable condition, police said.
“He was hit in his right knee by a stray bullet,” a police source said, adding that 17 shell casings were found outside the address.
Then, at 10:20 p.m., collapsed off St. Nicholas Ave. 67 near 113th Street in Harlem when a 35-year-old man was shot in the right leg.
He was taken to St Luke’s Hospital in stable condition, police said. He was uncooperative, police officers said.
Three other men were shot dead just before midnight in two separate incidents.
Two men were shot and killed around 11:15 p.m. outside 2016 Third Avenue in East Harlem by a man who fled in a white van, police said.
A 61-year-old was shot in the left leg and a 27-year-old in the right leg, police said. It was not clear what led to the shooting or if the men were shot on purpose.
