Just one person was shot in Brooklyn last night hours after two episodes of daytime gun violence in the city on Sunday, police reported.

A 31-year-old man was shot while sitting inside a Nissan Ultima in front of 480 Sutter Ave., near Miller Avenue, in East New York at about 10:10 p.m. on Nov. 15. 

Officers from the 75th Precinct said the victim took a bullet in his shoulder, and was brought to Brookdale Hospital in stable condition. According to police sources, he was “uncooperative with investigators” in finding the suspect responsible.

There have been numerous shootings on Miller Avenue, including several homicides over the past few months, a hot-bed for gang activity, police reported.

The shooting happened after two people were shot in broad daylight in Brooklyn and the Bronx. 

In the first incident, on Parkside Avenue in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, a man was shot in the head and is in critical condition in Kings County Hospital.

The other occurred on Hutchinson River Parkway at the Einstein Mall parking area, where a man was shot in the shoulder by four men in a black sedan. No arrests as yet in either case.

There were several instances of shots fired in several parts of the city, but no other reports of people wounded in those cases.
