Gotham echoed with gunfire Saturday night into Sunday as 16 people were shot in 10 incidents over a span of less than seven hours — with one person dead and three others clinging to life after the overnight violence.

The carnage kicked off at 9:43 p.m. in the Bronx when a man wearing a red bandanna in a black sedan squeezed off six rounds at the corner of West 166th Street and Nelson Avenue, nailing an 18-year-old in the shoulder and a 20-year-old in the eye and abdomen, according to police. The eye-shot victim checked himself into Lincoln Hospital, police said.

The article goes on to state the following:

Later that evening, an 18-year-old man was shot in the chest at Brooklyn’s Gravesend Houses, according to cops. That victim went to Lutheran Medical Center and was expected to survive, law enforcement sources said.

At 10:26 p.m., a 26-year-old was shot in the leg in Brooklyn. Just a few minutes later, at 10:35, also in that borough, a 15-year-old was shot in the ankle.

As the clock rolled over to Sunday, the violence intensified.

In Queens, at 1:02 a.m., a 22-year-old was shot in the leg. Soon after, just a couple blocks away, a 39-year-old man was blasted four times in the back at Astoria’s Ravenswood Houses at 1:09 a.m., according to authorities. The victim was discovered unresponsive and taken to New York-Presbyterian Hospital, cops said.

The evening’s only confirmed death was 21-year-old Rashawn Pope, who was shot in the chest at the corner of West 125th Street and 12th Avenue in Harlem around 1:28 a.m., according to police.
