Victims Include Bronx Mother Of 3, Man In Queens

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – In another weekend of gun violence in New York City, there were at least 10 shooting incidents between Friday night and Saturday night.

A Queens Village park turned into a crime scene Saturday night as police investigated another shooting that killed a 33-year-old man.

A clerk inside a deli across the street heard the gunshots and ran to lock the door.

“I feel not safe. I feel very unsafe, so I have to move [from] this area,” deli worker Zeeshan Mughal told CBS2’s Cory James.

That shooting is one of several that happened throughout the city Saturday.

Hours earlier in East Harlem, a woman was struck by at least one bullet near East 111th Street and First Avenue.

In the Bronx, 25-year-old Priscilla Vasquez was shot to death around 5 a.m. It happened on East 152nd Street in the Melrose section.

Her family says she was an innocent victim.

“It was not meant for her. She was too much of a good, kind-hearted person,” Chucky Goya said.

A 28-year-old man was shot after midnight in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn.

Late Friday night in Coney Island, an Uber driver was shot in the stomach by a suspect he says was on a bicycle.

These latest instances add to a long list of shootings being investigation by the NYPD.

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams says the violence is getting out of control.

“The bad guys have increased,” he said.

He tells CBS2 he still has not seen the NYPD’s plan to combat the problem.

“They need to roll that plan out, and it needs to be a comprehensive plan that all of the community stakeholders and partners are aware of,” Adams said. “I don’t know about the plan they’re doing. That is a problem.”

Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz is hoping people living in communities where violence is increase will step up.

“People need to stay alert. But most important, if you know that someone has a gun, you see that someone has a weapon … notify the police department,” Katz said.

A total of 11 people were shot Saturday, as of 11 p.m. At least three have died.

    While crime is raging out of control, the NY attorney general is busy persecuting the NRA

    Look at the names and neighborhoods. Be honest, it is not the guns. It is a certain class of people of which to name them is blasphemy. People would become hysterical, shriek and pass out if the truth was ever mentioned. So we lie to each other while they all kill each other.

    The Governor and NYC officials can not stop drugs, so why would anyone think a law would stop guns. Remember stop and frisk was ended. What is left to do?

  3. CYRUS says:

    Governor, since NYC officials are clearly failing in their attempt to curb this deadly gun violence in NYC, it is imperative that you make more of an effort to abate this crisis. What are your plans for doing so so?
