One dead, one wounded in two NYC shootings overnight



A 29-year-old man was killed and another injured in a pair of separate shootings overnight in the Big Apple, law enforcement sources said Sunday.

The fatal victim was shot in the head shortly before 4:30 a.m. Sunday in Kips Bay for apparently looking at the suspect the wrong way while walking on East 26th Street, the sources said.

“What are you looking at?” the gunman allegedly sneered, before firing off multiple rounds, sources said.

The suspect fled and remains on the loose.

The victim was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where he died.

In Queens, a 23-year-old man was shot in the back during a dispute in Jamaica shortly before 10:30 p.m. Saturday, sources also said.

The victim was taken to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

His attacker and another man fled the scene in a white sedan but were stopped by cops and taken into custody shortly after the shooting — with one found to have a handgun in his waistband, the sources said.

Police have not identified the pair.

The two incidents come after a violent Saturday that saw at least five shootings, including one that killed a 10-year-old boy and another that wounded a 12-year-old girl.

“What hurt me was to see these EMT guys on my son like he is dead meat, dead cow,” the dead boy’s father, Albert Wallace, told The Post Sunday. “Once they put him into the ambulance, they started to pump his chest, so I knew something wasn’t right.”

The shootings were part of a year-long spike in gun violence in the Big Apple.
