THE BRONX (PIX11) — Two women and a teenage girl were shot in separate incidents just minutes apart in the Bronx on Sunday night, police said.
All three victims likely were unintended targets, officials said. In the first shooting, a 22-year-old woman was shot in the leg as she walked her dog near Bristow and Jennings streets around 8:45 p.m. She saw a white car going north on Jennings Street from which the bullet may have come. The woman was not likely to die, police said.
Just minutes later, a 46-year-old mom and her 13-year-old daughter were wounded in a shooting on Southern Boulevard, police said. The pair were inside a convenience store while two men argued outside. When someone opened fire, the mom and daughter were hit.
The teen was shot in the hand, officials said. Her mom was grazed in the chest. Neither victim was likely to die.
