A fourth victim, a 43-year-old man, arrived at Jamaica Hospital via private means in stable condition with two gunshot wounds to his right arm and one to his left leg, authorities said.

There have been no arrests and the investigation is continuing, the NYPD said.

Less than 15 minutes later, a 25-year-old man was shot in the head outside 199-23 Linden Blvd., near 200th Street, in Jamaica at around 1:40 am, police said.

The victim is in critical condition at Jamaica Hospital Medical Center.

The early Saturday bloodshed began shortly after 1 am in Brooklyn, when a 47-year-old man was shot in the stomach and a 34-year-old man was hit in the right elbow at 15 Albany Ave. in Bedford-Stuyvesant, police said.

Authorities are looking for two males who sped off on bikes towards Fulton Street.

There have been no arrests.

β€œIt’s unknown what led to this or what the motive was or if these two men were the intended targets,” an NYPD spokesperson said.
