Thanksgiving violence leaves one dead, a critical one in NYC
Thanksgiving got off to a bloody start in New York City — a series of shootings and stabbings late Wednesday and early Thursday morning left one person dead and another in critical condition, police officers said.
A man was shot dead in his car near 145th Drive and 184th Street in the Brookville neighborhood of Queens around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, authorities said.
When police arrived at the intersection, they found the 40-year-old victim unconscious and unresponsive in the driver’s seat of a 2018 Nissan Maxima with gunshot wounds to the chest.
According to police, he crashed into a telephone pole after being shot.
The man, whose name was not released until the family was notified, was taken to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
As of Thursday morning, no arrests had been made and the motive was unclear.
Another man was shot in the torso at around 7:45 p.m. early Wednesday night at East 173rd Street and Boston Road in Crotona Park East, authorities said.
He was taken to St Barnabas Hospital in stable condition. The motive was not known.
Hours later, around 1:20 a.m. Thursday, a man was shot in the left leg at Sheridan Avenue and East 165th Street in the Concourse area of the Bronx, police said.
He was taken to Lincoln Medical Center in critical but stable condition, police said.
No arrests were made and the circumstances leading to the shooting are unclear.
Meanwhile, around 3:50 a.m., a 28-year-old woman was stabbed in the arm by another woman at West 140th Street and Seventh Avenue in Harlem, police officers said.
The victim was taken to Harlem Hospital in stable condition.
Her attacker fled east on West 140th Street and no arrests were made, police said.
Police could not immediately confirm the motive for the stabbing or whether the two women knew each other.
Two men were stabbed to death just after 11 p.m. Wednesday night on East 75th Street and First Avenue on the Upper East Side, police officers said.
The men, 35 and 24, were hanging out in a group when they got into an argument with another man they knew, authorities said.
As the feud turned violent, the suspect stabbed the older man in the leg and the younger man in the groin, police officers said.
Both men were taken to Weill Cornell in stable condition.
The perpetrator fled on foot in an unknown direction.
No arrests were made.
