A gunman shot two men during a heated argument on Staten Island, police said Saturday.
The violence unfolded shortly before 10 p.m. Friday outside the Amendment 18 Bar & Grill on Bay Street in Stapleton when the unidentified gunman blasted a 51-year-old man in the stomach and a 39-year-old man in the hip, an NYPD spokesman said.
The wounded men were taken to Richmond University Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.
Meanwhile, in Washington Heights two women suffered lacerations when they got into a fight with a man and a woman at 2:10 a.m. outside 3920 Broadway in Washington Heights, police said.
The victims, a 21-year-old woman and a 39-year-old woman were struck with an unknown object, “possibly keys,” an NYPD spokesman said.
The injured women were taken to Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.
