NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — It was a violent night in New York City after at least 21 people were shot in incidents spanning each of the five boroughs.
As CBS 2’s Janelle Burrell reported, one of the shootings happened on Staten Island, where a man is fighting for his life after being shot in the face.
The incident happened at around 3:30 a.m. on Amboy Road in the New Dorp section of Staten Island.
Police were still on the scene Sunday morning collecting and processing evidence, including a backpack that belonged to the 42-year-old victim.
Investigators told Burrell the shooting was not random.
The victim had apparently gotten into an argument with another man. Police said a gun was fired and the victim was hit in the face with a bullet just outside of his home.
The shooting suspect was caught on surveillance video running from the scene of the crime, police said. He got away in a dark-colored pick up truck, WCBS 880’s Monica Miller reported.
The victim was rushed to Staten Island University Hospital.
