The city that never sleeps is now an epicenter of weekend violence that doesn’t seem to end but increasingly gets worse. On Sunday night alone, at least twelve people were shot across the city, including a 13-year-old girl and her mother while walking their dog. Two other people were also stabbed in separate incidents as the bloodbath spread throughout all five boroughs.
The young 13-year-old girl and her 46-year-old mom, originally from San Antonio, Texas, were standing inside a store at the corners of Southern Boulevard and Jennings Street in The Bronx when they were both hit by gunfire just before 9 PM, according to police and other sources.
The mother and daughter were both in stable condition, police said. According to sources, the mom was grazed in the chest, and her daughter took a bullet to her hand.
Around the same time Sunday evening, a 22-year-old woman walking her dog took a bullet to the leg. This occurred just a few blocks away from the store where the mother and daughter were shot in front of, near the corner of Bristow Street and Jennings Street. This also appeared to be a stray bullet striking another innocent bystander. The gunman, riding a Citbike, appeared to be aiming at a moving car but ended up shooting bullets all over the place, hitting innocent people in the process. The gunman is still at large.
A few hours earlier, in Brooklyn, NY, a 74-year-old woman was hit by a stray bullet in the stomach in East New York while sitting in the courtyard of the Louis Heaton Pink Houses. She was rushed to the hospital and is in critical condition.
