Seven men shot, one fatally, in three-hour span across NYC

Seven people were shot — one fatally — in a three-hour rash of violence across the city Tuesday night, police said.

A 20-year-old woman was also stabbed to death in the bloodshed that began at about 4:30 p.m. and spanned Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan, cops said.

The woman was discovered unconscious with multiple stab wounds inside a Washington Heights apartment on West 163rd Street near Amsterdam Avenue, police said.

She was taken to Harlem Hospital and pronounced dead. An unidentified woman inside the same apartment was taken into custody and a knife was recovered at the scene.

About 30 minutes later in Astoria, Queens, a shooting wounded four men, one of them critically.

At about 6 p.m., bullets flew in Harlem, hitting two men. One victim, 39, was struck in the left arm. The other man, 19, was shot twice in his right leg. Both men went to Harlem Hospital and are expected to survive.
