The violent Fourth of July weekend carried over into Sunday night where seven people were shot and five killed over a three-hour period.

The first victim was a 21-year-old man in Brownsville, Brooklyn, according to the New York Post.

He was discovered outside a building on Christopher Avenue with a gunshot wound and was taken to Brookdale University Hospital Medical Center. He was shortly after pronounced dead.

A few minutes later, the police was notified of another shooting in The Bronx, where a 29-year-old was found with a gunshot wound in the chest. He was taken to a hospital and declared dead.

Less than an hour later, a 15-year-old boy was shot outside a building on Madison Avenue. He was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive.

Shortly after 8 p.m., the police were notified of three men being shot inside 306 E. 171st St. in The Bronx—just a couple blocks down from where the earlier shooting had taken place.

A 22-year-old and 27-year-old who were shot in the chest and neck respectively were both pronounced dead upon arrival at St. Barnabas Hospital, according to police.

The last of the three, a 29-year-old, was shot in the arm. He is reported to be in stable condition at Lincoln Hospital.

Just before 9 p.m., a 45-year-old man was shot in the head inside a building in Stapleton.

The shootings come amid a violent weekend that has seen 42 shot and 9 killed within New York City in a span of 15 hours. Atlanta has seen 23 people shot, including the shooting death of an 8-year-old girl. Chicago was the site of 33 people shootings, with 7 being killed, including a young girl.
