“I’m not too happy about it. I have lived here for 53 years and this is the third shooting that has happened here,” said a resident who declined to give her name.

“I hope to get out of here in three years,” she said, adding that she plans to move to Virginia.

In Manhattan, a 25-year-old man was shot in the back around 9:10 a.m. at 310 East 113 Street in East Harlem, police said.
