Seven people were shot dead in five separate incidents across the city over a violent three-hour period on Sunday night.
The bloodshed has spilled over into shootings in Brooklyn and Queens and left at least one victim fighting for their life.
The first bullets flew around 9:45 p.m. outside the Queensbridge Houses at 40-07 10th St. in Long Island City. A 26-year-old man was shot and rushed to Elmhurst Hospital in critical condition, officers said.
