Four men were shot to death in a 10-hour period over the weekend in four separate incidents across the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens, police said.

The bloody night began Friday evening around 6 p.m., when police found 26-year-old Lamar Antonio Blackwood of Brooklyn in the lobby of 5706 Farragut Road with several gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead upon arrival at Brookdale Hospital.

The violence stretched into the early hours of Saturday with a report of a shooting in the Bronx just before 1 a.m. One man was pronounced dead outside of 1216 Burke Avenue, while a second was taken to Jacobi Hospital with a gunshot wound to the buttocks. He was listed in stable condition.

Just 45 minutes later, a man was found shot to death with five bullet wounds outside 184-09 140th Avenue in Queens. He was pronounced dead at Jamaica Hospital.

Finally, just after 4 a.m., police received a report of a shooting outside of a strip club in Queens. Police arrested Dwayne Johnson, 26, and charged him with the 2nd-degree murder of Allah Howell, 25, who was pronounced dead upon arrival at Elmhurst Hospital.

Investigations into the other shootings are ongoing.
