Just a few hours later, at around 3:10 a.m. Sunday morning, police in Brooklyn responded to another 9-1-1 call of a man shot on Rockaway Avenue.
Upon arrival, they found a 31-year-old man who had been shot in the torso. EMS responded and took the man to Brookdale University Hospital Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
The victim's identity has not yet been released, pending family notification.
Finally, at 6:30 a.m. Sunday morning, police responded to a 9-1-1 call of a man in need of aid in Bushwick.
When officers arrived, they discovered a 37-year-old man with multiple lacerations to his neck, lying on the ground unconscious and unresponsive.
The man was pronounced dead at the scene, and his identification has also not yet been released, pending family notification.
