Four people died and five were injured, including a 10-year-old girl, in stabbings and shootings Friday night and early Saturday morning, cops said.

A 49-year-old man was stabbed to death in a Hamilton Heights apartment just before 11:30 p.m. Friday.

The man was pronounced dead at Saint Luke’s hospital shortly after. A resident of the building where the man was found, Michael Patalano, 48, was arrested and charged with the murder Saturday, police said.

A few hours later, cops found a 32-year-old man with multiple gunshot wounds to the head and back in Stuyvesant Heights, Brooklyn. Police said the investigation is ongoing.

Six minutes later at 12:26 p.m. in the Bronx, a teen was shot in the head, hand and back in the Fordham neighborhood.

Kahleed Adams, 19, was pronounced dead at the scene. Cops said a group of men approached Adams and a deadly argument ensued. Police said the investigation is ongoing.

In Queens, a 10-year-old girl was hit with a stray bullet while walking her dog in Far Rockaway at 1:15 a.m.

Three others were injured in a separate shooting in Canarsie, Brooklyn, at 4 a.m.

In yet another incident, two men in their thirties were shot, one fatally, in Jamaica just after 5 a.m. Saturday.

One died after sustaining a gunshot wound to the chest. The other victim, shot in the ankle, was in stable condition at Jamaica Hospital early Saturday.
