    Police are investigating the shooting death of a man in East Harlem on the heels of one of the most violent weekends of the year in New York City. 

    The 29-year-old man was found dead with a gunshot wound to the head at 433 East 102nd St. at about 1 p.m. Tuesday, police said.

    No arrest has been made.

    The killing comes just after a weekend of gun violence in which two people were killed and more than 20 were hurt in 13 separate shootings. 

    Mayor de Blasio said Monday that crime is down overall in the city and urged New Yorkers to put the bloody weekend in context. 

    "While shootings are up, we were down 26 murders from last year," he said.
