Two killed in latest string of rampant gun violence this weekend in NYC
A 27-year-old Bronx man was gunned down in the Bronx early Sunday, one of more than a half-dozen fatal shootings reported this weekend as the surge of gun violence in the Big Apple continues.
The unidentified victim was shot around 9:15 a.m. following a dispute with the gunman outside 1760 Bruckner Blvd. in Soundview, with the shooter fleeing into the nearby Monroe Houses complex, according to police.
The man was taken to Jacobi Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said. Cops have not made an arrest in the case.
Earlier Sunday one man was killed and another wounded in a shooting near the wake for a US Marine veteran in Queens, sources said.
Prince Robinson, 35, was part of a group of people standing outside a house on 164th Street near 108th Street in Jamaica around 1:45 a.m. when the shooting broke out — with Robinson hit in the back.
He was pronounced dead at NYC Health and Hospitals.
Another man, an unidentified 27-year-old, suffered a shot to the leg and a graze wound to the head in the incident. He was listed in stable condition at Jamaica Hospital, police said.
Police said there was another shooting minutes later at 160th Street and Guy Brewer Boulevard, but it is immediately unclear if it was linked.
The shootings come after a bloody Saturday that saw 14 people shot — and five were killed — in 12 incidents, a spike over the four victims in three shootings on the same date in 2019, which also only saw one fatal shooting, according to data provided by the NYPD.
