A total of seven people were shot between Sunday night and Monday morning across Suffolk County.
The victims spanned across two different shootings reported by police.
Police say four people were shot Sunday at the Bay Shore Marina around 8:30 p.m. They say several people were gathered around the basketball courts when someone fired at them from outside the park.
It happened right near the popular restaurant Nicky's, where people said there was a long wait to get in at the time of the shooting.
A 19-year-old woman, two 22-year-old men and a 23-year-old man suffered injuries not considered life-threatening, according to police.
Then at about 12:30 a.m. Monday, police say three men were shot in Huntington Station.
Police say gunshots were fired from a vehicle at a small group gathered on 11th Avenue between West 11th Street and Norden Lane.
The victims -- two 22-year-old men and a 25-year-old man -- went to a hospital to be treated for injuries that are not life-threatening.
No arrests have been made in connection to either shooting. Police say they are looking into whether the two shootings are connected in any way.
"We believe both shootings could possibly be related, we're not certain at this time. That's something we're investigating," says acting Suffolk Police Commissioner Stuart Cameron. "We believe the victims were targeted. We believe the shootings may likely be gang-related. "
Cameron says Suffolk has had 15 total shootings with 20 victims so far this year, including the seven people from from last night. That's compared to 2020, with 17 incidents and 22 victims.
Suffolk police is seeking information in connection to both shootings through Crime Stoppers at 800-220-TIPS.
