Detectives are looking for the robber who shot a Queens man on Saturday afternoon and a second gunman who opened fire on two family members in Brooklyn early Sunday morning.

Cops said the Queens shooting happened at about 4:11 p.m. on June 26 near the corner of 136th Avenue and 217th Street in Laurelton.

Officers from the 105th Precinct, in responding to a 911 call, found the victim shot multiple times in the chest, left leg and left arm.

According to law enforcement sources, the victim told police that the gunman — whom he identified only as “H2O” — had attempted to rob him before opening fire.

EMS units rushed the victim to Jamaica Hospital for treatment of injuries not considered life-threatening.

So far, police have not made any arrests in the ongoing investigation.

About 12 hours later, a drive-by shooter opened fire on two young people and injured them at the corner of Blake Avenue and Wyona Street in New Lots, Brooklyn at about 4:21 a.m. Sunday morning.

Police said the victims, a 17-year-old male and a 20-year-old woman, both family members, were standing at the location when the suspect pulled up in a gray sedan and began firing on them. 

Cops said the 17-year-old took a bullet to his right foot, while the 20-year-old woman was hit in the right leg.

After opening fire, the shooter took off in the sedan which fled in an unknown direction.

Officers from the 75th Precinct and EMS units responded to the scene. Both victims were taken to Brookdale University Hospital for treatment; they are expected to recover.

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

Meanwhile, the NYPD released video footage of a Bronx shooter as he opened fire on two men and injured them on Friday night.

Police said the suspect shot the victims in front of 2710 Morris Ave. in Kingsbridge Heights at about 11:10 p.m. on June 25.

Officers from the 52nd Precinct, in responding to the location, found a 26-year-old man shot in the left thigh. EMS rushed him to St. Barnabas Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition.

Law enforcement sources said the second victim, a 20-year-old man shot in the right ankle, later walked into North Central Bronx Hospital seeking treatment. He’s also listed in stable condition at this time.
