NEW YORK -- Nine people were shot in separate incidents in New York on Monday and early Tuesday, police said. Four of the victims died and five others are wounded. Detectives are investigating.

In the first incident, four masked men confronted a 20-year-old man in the lobby of a building in Co-Op City in the Bronx. A fight broke out and spilled into the street, where someone shot the victim in the chest. The masked men ran away. The victim was listed in critical condition.

Around 8 p.m. in Brooklyn, police officers responded to an emergency call near Euclid and Sutter Avenues in East New York. They found a 26-year-old man shot in the head. He was pronounced dead at Brookdale Hospital.

A few minutes later in the Baychester Section of the Bronx, a gunman fired several shots into a car stopped in a driveway on Fenton Avenue, hitting and killing Orlando Clarke, 26. He had pulled into his neighbor's driveway when the shooting happened, police said.

Later, around 9:44 p.m. in Brooklyn, police found two teenagers shot in the head in front of 121 Lefferts Place, along the border between Clinton Hill and Bedford-Stuyvesant. They were pronounced dead at the scene. Police identified the victims as Robert Grant, 19, and Oliver Maitland, 16.

Hours later in Bedford-Stuyvesant, four people were shot outside the Seabreeze Manor nightclub on Nostrand Avenue. Two victims were taken to Kings County Hospital and two others to New York Methodist. None of their injuries is considered life-threatening, officials said.

The shooting happened around 4 a.m.

As of Tuesday evening, police have not made any arrests in these shootings. Anyone with information about these crimes can call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 800-577-TIPS or 888-57-PISTA for Spanish speakers. Callers can remain anonymous.
