According to the initial police investigation, the two 18-year-old women and the 24-year-old man, were injured in the shooting after a fight. The three victims were taken to a hospital with injuries that were not considered life threatening.

The shootout unfolded on Avenue M near 95th Street. Earlier in the day, a 20-year-old man died and a 25-year-old man was injured in a shooting at 219th Street and 137th Avenue in Queens.

The day before, police said that a 27-year-old was killed in a shooting on East 96th Street near Winthrop Street in Brooklyn. Police are also investigating two separate stabbing incidents in the subway system that left three wounded.

Two suspects, who boarded a train at the Q Station on Atlantic Avenue, demanded money from a rider and when he refused they stabbed him in the head and stomach. The suspects fled when the train stopped at the station in Prospect Park.

A broken knife was recovered at the station. The victim was taken to a hospital in stable condition. The second stabbing incident involved two men on the number 4 train near Lexington Avenue.

The two were stabbed during an argument with two other men. Both were taken to a hospital and are expected to survive. Police launched investigations, but so far, no arrests have been made.
