Three men gunned down in separate shootings across NYC: cops


Three men were killed in separate shootings across the Big Apple Tuesday into early Wednesday, according to police. 

The spate of violence began on Tuesday around 3:30 p.m., when Jadon Robinson, 30, was gunned down in broad daylight in the Soundview section of the Bronx, cops said.

Robinson was shot multiple times on Morrison Avenue near East 172nd Street and taken to Jacobi Medical Center, where he died.

Police did not know what led up to the shooting, and no one has been arrested in connection to the slaying. 

Around 10 p.m. Tuesday in Queens, a 33-year-old man was blasted in the chest during a dispute on Hollis Avenue and 205th Street, police said. 

The man, who was not identified pending family notification, was rushed to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

The alleged shooter, a 24-year-old man, fled, but cops tracked him down and arrested him nearby, police said. Charges are pending.
