One of the people who died was a 16-year-old who was shot and killed in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Bedford-Stuyvesant. Monday just before 6 p.m., the teen was standing across the street from his home on Marcus Garvey Boulevard.

A 27-year-old man was shot and killed around 2:30 p.m. in the Bronx. This was the second shooting death of the day. The person was found with a gunshot wound to the head on Longfellow Avenue in the Longwood neighborhood.
A friend of the victim told Eyewitness News, “I ran to him, dropped everything, put pressure on his neck, and just talked to him.”
We don’t know what happened before or after the killing. No one has been caught yet.
Three people were also shot in Manhattan, and one of them died at the hospital. No arrests have been made.
