In the closing hours of Memorial Day weekend in New York City, three people were shot dead and a man was attacked with a wrench on the subway.
A teenager went to the Harlem hospital around 8:15 p.m. with a gunshot wound to the stomach, police said.
The 19-year-old man told officers he heard gunshots and felt pain but was “uncooperative” with the investigation, according to the NYPD.
Five minutes later, a 21-year-old man was shot in the knee in the Woodstock section of the Bronx. The gunman fled the scene at 908 Tiffany Place, officials said.
Sometime after 11 p.m., a woman was shot in the arm at 107-34 128th Street in South Richmond Hills, Queens, according to police and sources.
A fight at 8:30 p.m. between two passengers on the express train ended when one man hit the other with a wrench, authorities said.
The suspect fled and the victim was treated for a hand injury at Bronx Care Hospital.
The borough violence came as more than 30 people were killed by guns over the US bank holiday weekend – including at least 13 in Philadelphia and six in Chicago.
Additionally, there has been a worrying trend of violence on the city’s subways.
A Goldman Sachs employee was shot down on his way to brunch on a Q train in Manhattan earlier this month.
According to police, the incident is the fourth transit killing this year and is the same number as this time last year.
