One man was killed and three others were injured in two separate shootings in Queens and the Bronx on Sunday night, police reported.

The deadly shooting happened in the Bronx at about 9:20 p.m. on Jan. 3 at the Mott Haven Houses located at 380 East 143rd St.

Law enforcement sources said two men were shot inside an apartment within the public housing complex. The motive for the shooting remains unknown.

Officers from the 40th Precinct and NYPD PSA 7 responded to a 911 call about shots fired and found an unconscious Terrell Liebert, 26, of East Burnside Avenue in Mount Hope, Bronx, with gunshot wounds to his torso. They also located an 18-year-old man who had been shot in the right hand.

EMS rushed both victims to Lincoln Hospital, where Liebert was pronounced dead. The 18-year-old man is listed in stable condition, authorities reported.

As of Monday morning, police did not have a description of the suspected shooter. The case remains under investigation, with no arrests made.

Earlier on Sunday, a man and woman were shot while sitting in a parked car on a Queens street, police reported.

The gunfire erupted just before 7:14 p.m. on Jan. 3 in front of a home along 224th Street near 138th Avenue in Laurelton.

Police said an unidentified gunman shot a 27-year-old man in the arm and a 22-year-old female in the leg, then took off inside a gray Toyota Corolla that was seen fleeing the location.

Officers from the 105th Precinct and EMS units responded to the shooting. Paramedics brought the victims to Jamaica Hospital for treatment; they are expected to recover.

So far, no arrests have been made in the case, police said.

Anyone with information regarding either shooting is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (for Spanish, dial 888-57-PISTA). You can also submit tips online at nypdcrimestoppers.com, or on Twitter @NYPDTips. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
