Four hurt in two NYC shootings on Wednesday, NYPD says

Four people were wounded — one critically — in two separate shootings across the Big Apple late Wednesday, according to cops.

Two 36-year-old men were blasted in the leg — one of them struck twice — and a 30-year-old man also shot in the leg on Glenwood Road near East 31st Street in South Midwood around 10:10 p.m., cops said.

All three went to the Kings County Hospital Center by private means with non-life-threatening injuries.

The circumstances of the shooting were not immediately clear.

About two hours earlier, a 29-year-old man was shot once in the head during a dispute on Prospect Avenue near East 163rd Street in the Bronx, cops said.

He was rushed to Lincoln Medical Center with life-threatening injuries, according to police.

The suspect, who cops say was wearing a red shirt and gray sweatpants, took off, heading north on Prospect Avenue.

In total on Wednesday, four shootings were reported with six victims, according to preliminary numbers released by the NYPD. No one was killed.

On that day in 2019, two people were shot — neither fatally — in two separate shootings.

Gotham has endured a recent citywide surge in shootings.
