One person was killed and five others were wounded Sunday night and Monday morning during shootings in Brooklyn and Manhattan, capping off another violent weekend that saw seven slain and more than 30 wounded in citywide gun violence.

The overnight homicide happened in Brooklyn at about 10:38 p.m. on Sunday night, when a 34-year-old man was shot to death at the Howard Houses, in front of 280 Mother Gaston Blvd., in Brownsville.

The victim, who took a bullet to the chest, died at Brookdale Hospital. His identity has not yet been released.

Police have yet to provide further information about the shooting, or a description of the suspect. The same location has seen three homicides in the past two months.
