A 37-year-old woman and a 22-year-old man were killed in seprate Bronx shootings overnight that left three others injured.
In the latest deadly incident, three men were shot following a dispute at the corner of East Burnside Avenue and the Grand Concourse at 3:50 a.m. Saturday, police said.
Joshua Thomas, 22, died from a gunshot wound in the head, while another 22-year-old male was shot in the torso and a 25-year-old man was shot in the left leg, the NYPD said.
The three victims were taken to St. Barnabas Hospital, where the surviving 22-year-old was in critical condition and the 25-year-old was listed in stable condition, cops said.
“A 22-year-old person of interest was taken into custody with charges pending,” an NYPD spokesman said. “No firearm has been recovered at this time. The investigation remains ongoing.”
Earlier, at 12:20 a.m., a 37-year-old woman and a 43-year-old man were ambushed in the vicinity of East 170th Street and College Avenue in Claremont while sitting in their car, authorities said.
The woman, who was in the driver’s seat, was fatally shot in the head, while the man, in the front passenger seat, was shot in the left leg, police said. EMS transported the doomed woman to St. Barnabas Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. The “uncooperative” 43-year-old was taken to Lincoln Hospital in stable condition, the NYPD said.
There are no arrests and police are investigating. An NYPD spokesman said the 43-year-old “is known to the department” and has a lengthy rap sheet.
Blood also spilled on East 131st Street and Lenox Avenue in Harlem early Saturday when a 19-year-old woman was slashed in the right hand by another woman she knew from the neighborhood, police said.
“Words were exchanged and the verbal turned physical,” an NYPD spokesman said.
The victim was taken to Harlem Hospital in stable condition, cops said.
