Two men were killed and another person got hurt from a stray bullet when someone wearing a black ski mask shot at them on a street in Manhattan. The shooting happened late Sunday night at W. 207th St. and Tenth Ave. in Inwood.

A 44-year-old man was shot in the face and taken quickly to Harlem Hospital, but he died at 12:12 a.m. Another man, 45 years old, was shot and died at New York-Presbyterian Allen Hospital at 12:17 a.m. The names of the victims were not given right away.

A 36-year-old man was hit in the leg by a bullet that missed its target. He’s in stable condition at Harlem Hospital.

The shooter ran away and hasn’t been caught. Police found four shell casings where the shooting happened.

Earlier on Sunday, at 9:47 p.m., a 17-year-old boy was shot in the chest and buttocks during an argument with two other teens at W. 186th St. and Wadsworth Ave. in Washington Heights, which is about a mile away from where the two men were killed. The teen is in stable condition at a local hospital. The shooters escaped.

Police say these two shootings aren’t related.
