Shootings across New York City marred a National Night Out Against Crime Tuesday.
Six people were shot in incidents in Manhattan and the Bronx.
In the Bronx shooting, three teens were shot at W. 216th St. and Barnes Ave. near a playground. It happened at about 11 p.m. in the Williamsbridge neighborhood. One teen was shot in the leg, another teen in the torso and a female was also hit in the torso. All three victims were taken to Jacobi Hospital and all are expected to survive.
Two men were taken into custody in connection with the separate shooting in the Harlem section of Manhattan.
Two women and a man, all in their 20s, were shot at Frederick Douglass Boulevard and West 143rd Street.
The victims were rushed to Harlem Hospital and St. Luke's. Their conditions were not immediately known.
The shooting occurred a few hours after Mayor Michael Bloomberg visited all five boroughs for National Night Out Against Crime events.
The program is held annually to build relationships between police and residents and fight crime.
