According to the New York Post, cops added that in the second incidence of gunplay, a 19-year-old boy was shot in the back in Bushwick, Brooklyn. He was rushed to Wyckoff Hospital in stable condition.

On Staten Island, a 42-year-old man was blasted in the stomach on Osgood Avenue at about 4:45 a.m., cops added. His brother picked him up, but he was later loaded into an ambulance and driven to Richmond University Medical Center.
