The gun violence started with a deadly shooting just before 7:30 p.m. near the intersection of West 125th Street and Amsterdam Avenue in Harlem, police said.

Officers responding to a 911 call arrived to find 32-year-old Devin Campbell with multiple gunshot wounds, according to officials. He was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Then, over in Brooklyn, a 46-year-old man was hospitalized after being shot in the torso by an unknown man around 8 p.m. in the Brownsville section, police said.

The youngest victim of the violent night was a 19-year-old boy who was shot in the arm just before 9 p.m. on a basketball court at the Amsterdam Houses NYCHA complex on the Upper West Side, officials said.

Less than an hour later, back in Brooklyn, authorities said a 25-year-old man was shot in the stomach around 9:45 p.m. in the Sunset Park neighborhood.

The victim was approached by two men who tried to rob him, but when they were unsuccessful, one of them pulled out a gun and opened fire before fleeing, police said.

Up in the Bronx, three people were wounded when two men opened fire Just after 10 p.m. on Dekalb Avenue in the Norwood section, police said.

Two hours later, at around midnight, gunfire rang out in the Norwood section yet again.

The victims where rushed to a nearby hospital after the gunman fled, authorities said.

“We’ve got to fix this situation,” the mayor said Monday, referring to an ongoing rise in gun violence across the city.
