Two men took bullets to the face in Brooklyn and Queens on Saturday night, and a man was shot multiple times on a Bronx street Sunday morning, in separate incidents now under investigation, police reported.

The first shooting happened in Brooklyn at 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 23 inside an apartment building at 675 Lincoln Ave. in East New York.

Cops said a 41-year-old man was shot in the face inside the building’s second-floor hallway. The circumstances surrounding the shooting are unknown at this time.

Officers from the 75th Precinct and EMS units responded to the incident. Paramedics brought the victim to Brookdale University Hospital with injuries that are serious, but not considered life-threatening at this point.

Police sources said the victim has proven to be uncooperative with detectives at this point in the ongoing investigation.

At around the same time as the Brooklyn shooting, cops said, a 20-year-old man walked into Elmhurst Hospital’s emergency room in Queens with a bullet wound to his mouth, cops said. 

Officers from the 110th Precinct were called to the hospital at about 7:35 p.m. Saturday night, not long after the wounded man arrived there via private means. He remains hospitalized at this hour in stable condition. 

Detectives have not yet determined the motive behind the shooting, or where the victim was originally wounded.

Finally, a 26-year-old man in the Bronx is fighting for his life at this hour after being shot multiple times on Sunday morning.

The incident happened at about 8:30 a.m. on Jan. 24 in front of an apartment building at the corner of Brook Avenue and East 143rd Street in Mott Haven.

Officers from the 40th Precinct, in responding to a 911 call at the location, found the victim shot multiple times about the body. EMS units rushed the victim to Lincoln Hospital with critical, life-threatening injuries.

No arrests have been made in the ongoing investigation, police reported.
