There were seven shootings across the city yesterday, spanning the five boroughs and leaving eight people injured and one dead.

Police said that the violent day began at about 1:30 a.m. Sunday morning, when they responded to a shooting in the Belmont neighborhood of the Bronx. They arrived to find a 19-year-old male who'd been shot in the shoulder and chest. He was pronounced dead upon admission to St. Barnabas hospital. Police recovered a firearm at the scene.

Then, at 2:45 p.m., a 20-year-old male was playing basketball at El Shabazz Playground in Bedford-Stuyvesant in Brooklyn when he was shot, police said. He was taken to Kings County Hospital, and his injuries aren't expected to be life-threatening.

"It was a regular, nice day," one witness recalled. "The kids were playing basketball like they usually do...Then I heard three gunshots. So I looked outside my window. People were in a panic, and they started running. I saw a mother put her child under her arm and start running."

The violence in Brooklyn continued just past 8:30 p.m., when another 19-year-old male was shot in the neck in Brownsville, police said. He was transported to Brookdale Hospital, and is expected to survive.

Just an hour later, a 25-year-old male was shot in the abdomen in East Harlem, according to the NYPD, who said that he'd been involved in a fight. He was transported to New York Presbyterian-Weill Cornell Medical Center, and his injuries aren't life-threatening.

The owner of a deli near that shooting told the Daily News that he heard gunshots, and people ran to his store for cover.

"There were so many of them," he said. "They came from the park, too. The guy fell down outside in front of the store. He was bleeding so much through his clothes. He wasn't saying anything."

Then at 10:45 p.m. in South Jamaica, Queens, police said three people were shot in a single incident: a 34-year-old female was shot in the left leg; a 29-year-old female in the right buttock; and a 34-year-old male in the back. The three were transported to Jamaica Hospital, and none of their injuries are life-threatening.

Shortly thereafter, Jamaica Hospital received another gunshot victim: a 20-year-old man walked in with a gunshot wound to the back at about 11:15 p.m., after having been involved in a dispute, according to the NYPD. A second male may have also been shot in the leg, though police didn't immediately have information available on that. Both are reportedly stable.

Finally, just past 11:15 p.m, a man was sitting in a parked car in the Fox Hills neighborhood of Staten Island when he was shot once in the head, police said—he'd apparently been shot by a stranger, and it's not clear how many times the shooter fired. The victim taken to Richmond University Medical Center and is in critical condition.

No arrests have been made yet in any of the shootings.
