Three people were shot dead in New York at the end of Memorial Day weekend

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.
