At least four shot in three separate Saturday night incidents in NYC



Four people were shot and wounded in three separate incidents late Saturday — the latest in a year-long spate of gunplay in the Big Apple.

Among the victims were two teenagers who were struck by bullets in Harlem shortly after 10 p.m. following a dispute, police sources said.

A 19-year-old girl was hit in the left leg and a 17-year-old in the left calf at East 135th Street and Harlem River Drive, the sources said.

Cops recovered six 9 mm shell casings.

Both teens were taken to Harlem Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

That shooting came just 20 minutes after a 35-year-old man was shot in the leg in Elmhurst after getting into a spat with two men.

One of the suspects was arrested in the incident but the second remains on the loose, the sources said.

Cops recovered a .380-caliber shell casing at the seen.

The victim was taken to Elmhurst Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Earlier in the night a wheelchair bound man was grazed by a bullet in Weeksville.

The 32-year-old victim was grazed in the left cheek by a bullet on Sterling Place around 10 p.m. and was taken to Kings County Hospital, where he is expected to recover.

The suspect in that shooting remains on the loose.
