Three men were killed in separate Brooklyn shootings between Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning on another summer night marred by gun violence in the borough, police reported.
Police said the first homicide happened at the Brownsville NYCHA development, at 350 Blake Ave., at about 9:13 p.m. on July 12, where a 26-year-old man was shot dead.
Officers from the 73rd Precinct and NYPD PSA 2, in responding to a 911 call about shots fired, found the victim unconscious and unresponsive, with a bullet wound to his chest.
EMS rushed the man to Brookdale University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later. Police have not yet released his identity, pending family notification.
About two hours later, the 73rd Precinct responded to its second murder of the night — in front of an apartment building at 186 Thomas Boyland St. in Ocean Hill, at 11:10 p.m. on July 12.
Upon arriving at the scene, officers found a 29-year-old man shot in the left leg. EMS rushed him to Brookdale Hospital, but he succumbed to his injuries a short time later.
The victim’s identity was also not released, pending family notification.
The gun violence in Brooklyn continued into the next morning, when a 24-year-old man was gunned down in front of a Cypress Hills home just after midnight Wednesday.
Members of the 75th Precinct found the victim shot in the torso along Lincoln Avenue between Fulton Street and Atlantic Avenue at about 12:31 a.m. on July 13.
EMS rushed him to Jamaica Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. His identity has also been withheld, pending family notification.
Police did not have any information regarding motives for any of the shootings, nor did they provide descriptions of potential suspects.
No arrests have been made in either shooting, and the investigations are ongoing.
