81-year-old shot in overnight NYC gun violence, cops say

Three people were killed and five others wounded by gunfire in six separate shootings overnight in the Big Apple, including an 81-year-old man blasted in the foot on the Upper West Side, authorities said. 

The elderly victim was injured and a 45-year-old man struck in the chest when gunfire erupted on West 105th Street near Manhattan Avenue around 6:30 p.m. Monday, police said.

Both victims were taken to Mount Sinai Morningside, where they are expected to survive.

It was not immediately clear whether the shooter intended to strike the older man.

Early Tuesday morning, an unidentified man was found unconscious around 4:30 a.m. on Walton Avenue near East 172nd Street in Mount Eden in the Bronx, cops said. 

EMS workers tending to the victim determined he suffered gunshot wounds to the torso, police said. 

He was rushed to BronxCare Health System, where he was pronounced dead. 

The circumstances of that shooting were not immediately clear. 

Hours earlier, Broderick Daniels, 28, was blasted in the torso in the vestibule of his own building, on 184th Street near 104th Avenue in the Hollis section of Queens, around 1 a.m., cops said.

The younger woman was shot in the right foot and the older woman blasted in the left leg, authorities said. 

The 19-year-old was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital by EMS, and the older victim to the same hospital by private means — and both are expected to survive, cops said. 

Two police officers were on a foot post nearby when they saw the BMW pass by — with the suspect still holding the gun out the window, police sources said. 

One of the cops fired at the vehicle, though it was unclear if anyone was struck, police said. The driver took off. 

The 19 and 21-year-old female victims who were shot near Jennings Ave. and Prospect Ave. are expected to survive.
