Two people were reported shot in separate incidents in the Bronx and Queens Monday as gunfire wanes citywide with the arrival of cooler fall weather, police said.
Law enforcement officials said that cops have made numerous gun arrests over the past month, with some of them linked to numerous recent shootings.

Officers from the 113th Precinct found the victim on the ground and EMS rushed him to Jamaica Hospital where he was reported in stable condition.
Bullets also hit the windshield of a nearby Nissan Sentra. Cops believe this incident was a drive-by shooting.
Police did not have a description of the vehicle or the suspects involved; the investigation is ongoing.
The other shooting occurred in the Bronx at about 12:15 a.m. on Oct. 6, when a 22-year-old man was shot in the leg and stomach after a violent dispute at the corner of Starling Avenue and Castle Hill Avenue in Parkchester.
Officers from the 45th Precinct found the victim on the ground and EMS rushed him to Jacobi Hospital, where he is expected to survive.
There was no description of the assailant or motive in this case as detectives from the 45th Precinct.
