HARLEM, Manhattan (PIX11) — Four men were shot late Tuesday in Harlem, marking the second quadruple shooting in New York City in a matter of hours, officials said.
A gunman opened fire on a group of people standing on West 116th Street near St. Nicholas Avenue around 11:45 p.m., striking the four men, all in their 20s, police said.
First responders rushed the victims to area hospitals, with authorities describing three of them as in stable condition and the fourth, who was struck in the leg, in critical condition.
Investigators had not announced an arrest or publicly identified a suspect as of early Wednesday.
The shooting came just hours after four people were wounded in a shooting at a park in the Ozone Park section of Queens. Officials said that there was no immediately known connection between the two incidents.
