Investigators questioned a man in connection to the deadly shooting of a 24-year-old man near University Avenue and West 195th Street in the Bronx at around 5 a.m. Sunday.

Another man died after a shooting in Brownsville early Sunday morning. Police arrived at 93 Tapscott St. at around 4:26 a.m. to find three victims, including a 28-year-old who succumbed to a gunshot wound to the back after he was rushed to the Brookdale University Hospital and Medical Center.

A 27 year-old woman also suffered from a gunshot wound to her foot, and a 31 year-old man sustained a gunshot wound to the leg. Both were taken to local hospitals where police said they remain in stable condition.

In Coney island, cops said that an unidentified shooter took aim towards 2321 Mermaid Ave. at around 7:20 p.m., injuring the boy above his right knee and a 25-year-old male in the abdomen.

Police said the two victims were not together but both were rushed to Lutheran Medical Center in stable condition. Authorities described the suspect as a male, wearing a yellow T-shirt, yellow shorts, white sneakers and a multi-colored baseball hat.

Another man was shot in his leg in Bed-Stuy at Bergen Street near Ralph Avenue in Crown Heights at around 4:58 a.m. Police said the victim was uncooperative in their investigation.

A fourth man was taken to Mount Sinai St. Luke’s Hospital with a gunshot wound to his foot, and was soon arrested in connection to the shooting along with two other suspects.
