Gunshots rang out in New York City on Saturday night, coinciding with a rise in summer-like temperatures. Six people were hit by bullets in four separate incidents, and sadly, two of them died, according to the NYPD.

The most tragic incident happened around 10:30 p.m. at a home in South Richmond Hill, Queens. Police found a 52-year-old woman and a 27-year-old man shot inside the house. Another man, 33, was found nearby with a gunshot wound to his head and a gun next to him. The woman survived and was taken to the hospital, but the two men were pronounced dead at the scene. It’s not clear yet if the 33-year-old man was the shooter.

The violence began earlier in the day in East Flatbush when a 15-year-old boy was shot in the arm outside a residence around 5:30 p.m. A few miles away in Brownsville, a 58-year-old man was shot in the ankle at the Marcus Garvey Houses before 8:45 p.m. Both victims are in stable condition after being taken to the hospital.

In Harlem, another teenager was shot in the elbow just before 7:30 p.m. The 19-year-old victim is also in stable condition, and the police have arrested a male suspect in connection with this incident.

Investigations are ongoing for all four shootings.
