Detectives are investigating a pair of deadly shootings in Staten Island and the Bronx between Saturday night and Sunday morning.

The first homicide happened on Staten Island at about 7:48 p.m. on Jan. 16, when a 23-year-old man was gunned down inside a home on Van Duzer Street near Metcalfe Street in Fox Hills.

Cops said that Jahade Chancey, of Warren Street in Stapleton, suffered multiple gunshot wounds to his back.

Officers from the 120th Precinct and EMS units responded to 911 calls about the shooting and found the wounded Chancey at the location. Paramedics rushed him to Staten Island University Hospital-North Campus, where he was pronounced dead. 

A few hours later, a 27-year-old man was slain early on Sunday morning in front of a Bronx apartment building.

Jamal W. Hunter, 27, of Faile Street took a bullet to his neck along Fulton Avenue near the Cross Bronx Expressway, across from Crotona Park, in East Tremont at about 1:07 a.m. on Jan. 17. 

Cops from the 42nd Precinct, in responding to a 911 call about the incident, found Hunter unconscious and unresponsive at the scene. EMS units brought him to St. Barnabas Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

No arrests have been made in either case, and the investigations are ongoing.
