Cops are looking for the gunman who shot a 32-year-old man to death on a Harlem street Sunday afternoon, police reported.

Detectives are also investigating two separate shootings in Queens and the Bronx between Sunday and Monday that left the victims with injuries not considered life-threatening.

Police said the Harlem shooting occurred at about 3:29 p.m. on Dec. 6 in front of a grocery store at the corner of West 129th Street and Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard.

Officers from the 32nd Precinct, in responding to a 911 call, found the unidentified 32-year-old man unconscious and unresponsive with a gunshot wound to his head. 

Responding EMS units rushed the victim to Harlem Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Police have withheld his identity, pending family notification.

As of Monday morning, police have yet to ascertain a motive for the shooting, or a description of the suspect responsible. The investigation is ongoing.

Regarding the Queens shooting, cops said a 22-year-old man will likely survive his brush with death after taking a bullet to the chest in Ridgewood on Sunday afternoon.

Law enforcement sources said the victim was shot at about 5 p.m. on Dec. 6 at the corner of Grandview Avenue and Bleecker Street.

Officers from the 104th Precinct were advised of the shooting after the victim was rushed by private means to Wyckoff Heights Medical Center for treatment of an injury not considered life-threatening.

Police sources said the victim has been “highly uncooperative” with detectives. No arrests have been made in the case.

Then, at about 5:45 a.m. on Monday morning, Dec. 7, a 19-year-old man was shot in the buttocks in front of a home on Brown Place between East 135th and 136th Streets in the Mott Haven section of the Bronx.

Officers from the 40th Precinct and EMS units located the victim at a location on East 137th Street, where he apparently fled after being shot. Paramedics brought him to Lincoln Hospital in stable condition.

As with the Queens shooting, police sources said, the Bronx victim is not cooperating with detectives.
