It is New York City mayhem as Gotham has seen a bloody weekend and out of control violence that does not discriminate and sweeps across all five boroughs. Furthermore, these last couple of weekends have left dozens shot, stabbed or, beaten by attackers throughout NYC.

Violence surged like the mercury this weekend, with three killed and twenty one injured in the past 24 hours. Among them a 10-year-old boy was shot in the knee on Mermaid Ave., Brooklyn, in the first of the night's shootings. Jason Bragg, 33, was found with a gunshot wound to the head in St. Albans, Queens, while a 28-year-old man was fatally shot in the back in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.
