Police: 5 people injured in Bronx shootings

Police say five people were shot at three different locations in the Bronx Monday night.

Three men were shot in the leg at 171st Street and Townsend Avenue before another man was shot just down the block, authorities say. The fifth victim was shot at a different location and police have yet to confirm if it is related to the first two.

Sources say the suspects shot their weapons from a dark-colored Honda.

All five victims were taken to either St. Barnabas Hospital or Lincoln Hospital. They are all expected to survive, police say.
