The first shooting happened at about 1 a.m. Saturday at a house party in Marine Park. Authorities say none of those injuries are considered life-threatening.
About an hour and a half later in the Flatlands neighborhood, police say a man tried to hold up a livery cab stopped at a traffic light. A passenger sitting in the back was shot in the head. He was hospitalized in critical condition.
