At least five people have been hospitalized after a violent night of multiple shootings across New York City.
Two brothers were shot Saturday at around 8 p.m. on University Avenue in Highbridge, police say.
On the other side of the Bronx in Melrose, two more men were shot in the lobby of the Jackson Houses early Sunday morning.
In Brooklyn, there were two shootings, both near Dekalb Avenue. Police say both of the Bed-Stuy shootings started after some sort of dispute. A man was hot in the leg, and the other man was shot in the stomach.
All the victims are expected to survive, and no arrests have been made at this time, authorities say.
Authorities say shootings have increased more than 10% across the city compared to last year.
This violence comes just months after Mayor Eric Adams announced plans to fight gun violence in the city by cracking down on illegal guns.
