Five men took bullets in four separate shootings across Queens and the Bronx between Monday night and Tuesday morning, police reported.

Two shootings occurred within about 10 minutes’ time at separate locations within the confines of the 103rd Precinct based in Jamaica, Queens.

According to police, two men were shot during a dispute that broke out at about 9:30 p.m. on June 14 at the corner of 160th Street and 107th Avenue. 

Cops said the street beef turned bloody when the unidentified gunman opened fire on the victims, striking a 22-year-old man multiple times in the chest, right arm and right shoulder; and a 59-year-old man in the left hand.

The victims were taken by EMS and private means to Jamaica Hospital, where they were both listed in stable condition.

At this point, detectives have yet to establish a possible motive for the shooting, or a description of the gunman. Sources familiar with the investigation said the victims have been uncooperative with police.

Nearly 10 minutes after the first shooting, law enforcement sources said, a suspect shot a 20-year-old man in the right hand during a dispute at a home on 191st Street off Jamaica Avenue in Hollis at about 9:39 p.m. on June 14.

EMS units rushed the victim in that incident to NewYork-Presbyterian Queens Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition. 

No arrests have been made in either Queens shooting, police said.

Early Tuesday morning, two men were shot in about a half-hour at separate locations in the Bronx, authorities said.

According to police, a 61-year-old man took a bullet to his back during a dispute inside a home on Park Avenue between East 181st and 182nd Streets in Belmont at about 12:30 a.m. on June 15. 

The circumstances surrounding the shooting remain unknown and under investigation, authorities said.

Officers from the 48th Precinct responded to the incident. EMS brought the victim to St. Barnabas Hospital in stable condition.

A short time later, a 56-year-old man was shot in the torso near Lincoln Hospital on East 149th Street at about 12:55 a.m. on June 15.

The victim arrived at the hospital via private means seeking treatment; police said he’s listed in stable condition.

At this point, officers from the 40th Precinct have not yet established a motive for the shooting, or a description of the suspect.
