De Blasio’s NYC: 14 Wounded, 2 Killed in Weekend Gun Violence

The shootings followed a familiar pattern, erupting at outdoor gatherings and corner hangouts, in pockets of New York City long plagued by weekend violence that the Police Department has struggled to control.

Six of the victims were in northern Manhattan, including two young men who were killed in front of a deli just before 3 a.m. Sunday, shot by a gunman who fired several times before speeding off in a waiting car. Earlier in a crowded East Harlem park, a 17-year-old and two 18-year-old men were wounded as bullets flew.

And at a Bronx apartment building on Sedgwick Avenue, uniformed police officers shot a man who they said was beating and stabbing his girlfriend with an eight-inch knife; both were expected to survive. . .

Rather than blatantly copy that Oscar-winning black-gay-victim film, Love, Simon remakes the pathetic Moonlight in the more marketable guise of a sitcom about a ... Read More
