From Fox News:

Eight people were shot, including one who died and another who is in critical condition, throughout New York City on Monday and Tuesday.

In the fatal shooting, Dashan Carver, 36, was shot at 2:30 a.m. Tuesday on East 194th Street in the Bronx and taken to St. Barnabas Hospital where he was pronounced dead, law enforcement officials told The New York Post.

A 32-year-old man was hit in the face in Crown Heights, a 24-year-old man was struck in the foot in the Bronx on East 166th Street near Sheridan Avenue, and a 52-year-old woman was left in critical condition after a drive-by in the lobby of a Staten Island building. 

NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea said in an interview Tuesday on CBS Radio’s 1010 WINS that the 52-year-old had been in an area “plagued by some gang activity.”

Three young people, including a 16-year-old, were shot outside of a subway station near East 170th Street on Monday afternoon. All were expected to survive.

A 70-year-old woman was hit by a stray bullet in Brooklyn Tuesday, according to officials

DE BLASIO SPIRALS: 2 NYPD Shot, 1 Stabbed, Mayor Says Protests Remind Him of John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.04.20

Two members of the NYPD were shot in Brooklyn overnight Monday and another officer stabbed in the neck as protesters defied an 8pm curfew imposed by beleaguered Mayor Bill de Blasio.

“The melee unfolded when a suspect approached a cop on Church Avenue near Flatbush Avenue at about 11:45 p.m. and stabbed him in the neck, a police source said,” reports the New York Post.

Meanwhile, the mayor faced a growing backlash after saying the violent situation reminded him of John Lennon’s utopian anthem ‘Imagine.’

“I don’t mean to make light of this. But I’m reminded of the song ‘Imagine’ by John Lennon. We played it at my inauguration! What about a world where people got along differently? What about a world where we didn’t live with a lot of the restrictions that we live with now,” said De Blasio. “We’re not there yet. The protest movement themselves is how we make progress!”

DE BLASIO SPIRALS: Embattled Mayor Says Spike in CoVID Hospitalizations Has Nothing to do With Protests

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.05.20

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio told reporters he would be “surprised” if a recent spike in CoVID-19 hospitalizations was related to the ongoing George Floyd protests taking place in all five boroughs.

“I would be surprised if that’s what’s causing it,” de Blasio said Friday. “I think we’re much more likely in the next week [or] 10 days to see a manifestation, if there is one.”

“It is dangerous to be close together,” he admitted. “I don’t like that.”

“If you were at one of those protests, I would, out of an abundance of caution, assume that you are infected,” Governor Cuomo said Thursday. “One person, one person can infect hundreds if you were at a protest.”
