Teen siblings among four hurt in separate shootings in NYC

Four people were wounded in three separate shootings across the Big Apple Sunday –including teenage siblings who were struck in a drive-by shooting, police said.

The teens were standing at the corner of Wyona Street and Blake Avenue in Brooklyn around 4:40 a.m. when bullets were shot from a passing gray, four-door sedan, cops said.

The 19-year-old female was hit in the right leg, while her 17-year-old brother was struck in the right foot. Cops recovered a bullet from the boy’s shoe, sources said.

Sources said the alleged assailant approached in the sedan — which was occupied by multiple people — said “what’s up” and started firing.

Emergency medical services removed the two youths to Brookdale Hospital, NYPD said. They were expected to survive.

The group of alleged assailants fled north on Bradford Avenue, sources said.

A 34-year-old man was shot at a courtyard party in the Highbridge section of the Bronx around 1 a.m. after “some kind of dispute” with another man.

Officers who responded to the scene found two .40-caliber shell casings, but the shooter evaded capture, sources said. The victim was removed to Lincoln Hospital and expected to survive, police said.

Later in the morning, at 9:25 a.m., cops responded to an emergency call from inside an apartment at 382 East 199th Street in the Bronx. They arrived to find a 33-year-old man with two bullet wounds in the abdomen and one in the arm.

He also suffered a graze wound to the head, sources said.

Four shell casings were recovered from the scene — but the gunman had yet to be identified.
