3 Dead In NYC Shootings, Including 14-Year-Old

NEW YORK (AP) — Police were investigating three fatal shootings in one afternoon on New York City streets — including that of a 14-year-old boy.

He was hit twice in the chest Monday on a Bronx street corner, and the suspects fled on foot.

An hour earlier in Brooklyn’s Carroll Gardens neighborhood, police say a man in his 20s died from a shot to the head and one to the chest.

And in Brooklyn’s Flatbush neighborhood, police say a 25-year-old man died of a gunshot wound to the chest.

Authorities did not immediately release the names of the victims. They did not know the motives for the killings.

    Ship all illegal guns to LI like the herion. Shoot up Merrick, Floral Park, New Hyde Park. Plenty of cops live there. The real MOB.

    Give them more illegal guns. Let them shoot it out. Problem solved in a generation or two.

    Illegal guns again used in crimes ! I am 100% for owning a gun legally. There appears to be tens of thousands of Illegan weapons on the streets of New York ! Where the hell are all of these guns coming from and why can’t someone get a handle on it !

    No you don’t need gun control, you need more enforcement of the existing laws, and more crime fighters on the streets. We need to shut down gangs and the gang mindset of ” kill so they know we mean business”. Remember the guns used in these killings were not owned legally, and that is a crime in it self!

      I don’t think that the gang members killing off each is the answer. I’m not sure what to do about the illegal guns or the gang members but if this is another form of Sodom & Gomorra, I don’t know what is. I can also imagine that GOD is at his breaking point.

    Terrible news – and my hearts go out to all “decent people” who fall victim to gun violence.
    High time that the US “updated” the 2nd amendment. That amendment worked great, in the 1770s – when the Minutemen were assembling, preparing to fight the British. However, today’s America needs to “update” this, just as we’ve updated other laws since the 1770s (slavery was legal, women couldn’t vote, etc.). I hope that the “rational right” will help out the “clueless right” (Palin, Beck, Limbaugh, Angle, others) in helping these people to understand that we really need better gun control.
