In addition, four more persons were shot and sought medical attention in the nearby hospitals. Fortunately, none of them were severely injured, said police.

The gunfire that harmed three men at about 10:55 p.m was reported along 137th Avenue and West Gate Street in Springfield Gardens. A leg shot, a back shot, and a shoulder shot were the injuries recorded.

Half an hour after the previous incident, a 32-year-old man was transported to the hospital. A gun was fired in front of 35 Norstrand Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant, striking him in the leg. Also, a dispute ended in the shooting of a 20-year-old man in Ozone Park at about 12:15 a.m.

The last gunfire incident reported resulted in a 16-year-old teen being shot in the head by a driver who opened fire. The victim is in critical condition.

Someone sarcastically pointed out that a criminal justice reform would be ideal for the mentioned incidents.

Criminal justice reform is great, ain't it? How many New Yorkers will our #woke politicians @CarlHeastie @CPeoplesStokes @AndreaSCousins @LizKrueger murder this week with bail reform, decarceration, and the moronic #DefundThePolice lunacy?

@LizaSoho

In the presence of such horrendous crimes, where is NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio?

Where’s @NYCMayor ?
