From the Daily News:
Twenty-four New Yorkers were hit by gunfire, one fatally, over 24 hours of violence this weekend, prompting Mayor Bloomberg to call the bloody stretch "unconscionable" and demand action from Washington.
The eruption of shootings from 6 a.m. Saturday to 6 a.m. Sunday left the mayor livid and the parents of three wounded children distraught and angry.
Police said the two dozen victims were shot in 14 separate incidents in Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx. As of last night, no arrests had been made in any of the shootings.
Bloomberg went ballistic yesterday, demanding stiffer federal gun laws.
The mayor said 24 people shot in 24 hours in the city "is just unconscionable."
"We cannot tolerate it," Bloomberg said while speaking at the Christian Cultural Center in Brooklyn. "There are just too many guns on the streets and we have to do something about it."
New York has the toughest gun laws in the country, but Bloomberg said the city alone cannot stop the onslaught of shootings. "We need the federal government to step up," he said.
From the NY Post:
By early Monday morning, seven more people were shot in four separate incidents in Brooklyn -- one of them fatally.
By noon, another seven people had been shot -- bringing the shocking toll to 39 people injured by gunfire since Saturday morning.
