Two teens among eight wounded as NYC shooting plague continues

At least one gunman pumped a bullet into the back of a teen’s head in Brooklyn, one of four separate shootings overnight across the Big Apple, police said Friday.

The 18-year old victim was with two other men standing in a large group on Regent Place near Flatbush Avenue around 11 p.m. Thursday when one gunman — or possibly two — hopped out of a four-door sedan and began firing at them, cops said.

The teen was rushed to Kings County Hospital Center in critical condition, cops said.

The other two victims — a 21- and a 26-year-old — were shot in the buttocks and leg, respectively. They were taken to the same hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The suspects got back in their car and took off, heading south on Flatbush Avenue, cops said.

The Thursday night gunplay began around 9:30 p.m. at West 132nd Street and Seventh Avenue in Harlem, where a 17-year-old boy was shot twice in the leg, cops said.

The suspect, a man in his 20s with a thin build, wearing a white T-shirt and gray shorts, fled on foot, heading north on Seventh Avenue.

The victim was taken to Harlem Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The epidemic of violence continued into Friday, when a 21-year-old woman was shot in the leg after a dispute at East 156th Street and Forest Avenue in the Bronx around 1 a.m.

She was taken to Lincoln Medical Center.

A few minutes later, a 62-year-old woman was shot in the leg during a party in a basement on Saratoga Avenue near Newport Street in Brownsville just after 1 a.m., according to cops and police sources.

She went to Brookdale Hospital Medical Center, cops said.

A total of five shootings with eight victims were reported citywide Thursday.

One of those victims was Sanel Music, 21, who was killed in a drive-by shooting as he sat in the driver’s seat of a car at 91st Street and 85th Avenue in Woodhaven.

Elvis Ljesnjanin, 19, was standing outside the vehicle when he was wounded in the shooting.
