Authorities said a teenager was shot multiple times in broad daylight in the Bronx on Monday, one of at least three bursts of gun violence in the Big Apple in 15 hours.
The 18-year-old victim was one of three persons injured in a sequence of shootings in the Bronx on Sunday night that also killed a 45-year-old male, according to officials.
After being shot twice in the chest and once in the right arm at Boston Road and Wilson Avenue in Williamsbridge around 11:30 a.m., the youngster was brought to Jacobi Medical Center, where he was expected to live.
The suspect, identified as a male in his twenties last seen wearing a black hoodie, fled following the shooting, according to police.

The cops did not immediately provide an explanation for the violence.
According to authorities, two males, 37 and 27, were hurt in a shooting outside a club and lounge in upper Manhattan shortly before midnight.
Authorities said the older man was shot in the right leg and the younger victim was shot in the torso on West 203rd Street near 10th Avenue in Inwood at around 11:56 p.m.
Both were sent to Metropolitan Hospital Center with non-life threatening injuries.
The circumstances were being investigated, according to authorities.
Authorities said the 45-year-old man was shot multiple times throughout the body inside an apartment building on West Farms Road near Hoe Avenue in Longwood at around 8 p.m. Sunday.
According to authorities, he was transferred to Lincoln Medical Center and died as a result of his injuries.
Cops stated the motive was still being investigated.
The slain man’s identity had not been released publicly as of Monday afternoon, pending notification of his family.
There had been no arrests in the three shootings.

At the time the statistics was produced, 1,071 persons had been reported shot in 911 incidents within the city, down from 1,472 victims of 1,216 gunshots at the same period in 2022, according to police.
