Make that 9 in Brooklyn, 5 in Manhattan, 5 in the Bronx, 1 in Queens an 1 on Staten Island. So, no borough has to feel left out.

One of the shootings was in Coney Island, and the NYPD released a surveillance photo of the suspect. Police say he shot a ten-year-old boy above the knee and a 25-year-old in the stomach Saturday night on Mermaid avenue.

Both are in stable condition.

Two other shootings were in Brownsville section of Brooklyn, including one on Tapscott Street that killed a 28-year-old man.

    cant wait for tonight’s right wing explanation for this ? It should be a good one

      What is there to explain?? NYC is extremely anti-gun and makes ownership almost impossible. So my guess is that this will be almost entirely criminal related.

        cool maybe bill and Hannity will compare NYC & Chicago ?

        And that makes the deaths more acceptable? Are their lives worth less than yours or mine?

        • R.J. Carter June 30th, 2014 at 4:08 pm

          No. But it will serve as another example of stringent gun control laws resulting in a rise of gun deaths.

          • Rusty Shackleford June 30th, 2014 at 4:51 pm

            Except that NYC has had a steady decline in crime and gun violence for years now.

          • R.J. Carter June 30th, 2014 at 5:08 pm

            As has Chicago, statistically. And yet we still get these headlines regularly.

          • Rusty Shackleford June 30th, 2014 at 5:13 pm

            Then that says to me that we’re not going far enough to tear down the toxic gun culture that is clinging to this country like a tumor.

        We won’t invade until they start using chemical weapons.
