A man was gunned down overnight in the Bronx, one of 22 people — including several teens — shot across the city Sunday into Monday, cops confirmed said.
A total of 16 shootings involving 20 victims occurred citywide on Sunday alone, according to preliminary figures released by the NYPD. That’s in stark contrast to the same day in 2019, when no shootings were reported at all.
On Saturday, five shooting incidents with five victims were reported, compared to none on that day last year.
The same numbers were reported on Friday. On that day in 2019, only one person was shot.
A total of 49 shooting incidents with 57 victims rocked the city last week, according to police sources.
Eight murders were reported.
