NEW YORK - Four teenagers, including three 16-year-olds and an 18-year-old, have died due to gun violence in New York City since Tuesday afternoon.
On September 28, 16-year-old Cahlil Pennington was shot just after 1:30 p.m. outside of the Fiorentino Plaza Houses in East New York, Brooklyn. Officers found him unconscious and unresponsive with a gunshot wound to the torso.
He was taken to NYC Health & Hospitals/Brookdale, where he was pronounced dead.
The next day, just before 1 p.m., 16-year-old Nisayah Sanchez was found on East 187th Street in the Belmont section of the Bronx with gunshot wounds to his chest and to the back of his head in a double-shooting.
He was taken by EMS to Saint Barnabas Hospital, where he died.
Less than six hours later, 16-year-old Jayden Turnage was shot in the chest and killed in front of 35 Monroe Street in Bedford-Stuyvesant at around 6:15 p.m.
