A man was gunned down and his brother was wounded outside a Bronx public housing complex on Tuesday night — one of at least six shootings in the Big Apple on Tuesday night, police and sources said.
In the fatal shooting, the two suspected gang-member siblings were both shot in the head in front of a building at NYCHA’s Monroe Houses in Soundview at about 7:20 p.m., police and the sources said.
Price Tunstall, 24, was taken to Jacobi Medical Center and pronounced dead, authorities said.
His 22-year-old brother, Malik Tunstall, was taken to the same hospital in critical condition, police and sources said.
The duo were busted in January 2020 on a federal narcotics conspiracy charge as part of an 11-member gang takedown at the Monroe Houses, prosecutors have said.
Price and Malik were allegedly part of the violent Monroe Houses Crew that operated out of the housing complex.
Members of the gang sold drugs, committed robberies, shot at rivals, possessed illegal firearms and one man was even accused of a murder, according Manhattan federal prosecutors.
At least five other people, including a 65-year-old woman, were wounded in other shootings across Brooklyn, Queens and Upper Manhattan Tuesday night, police sources said.
The 65-year-old was struck in the shoulder as she crossed the street at the corner of East 49th Street and Church Avenue at about 7:50 p.m, according to sources.
The woman was taken to Kings County Hospital and is expected to survive, sources said.
Another woman was shot at a housing complex in Coney Island, sources said, and three men were shot in separate incidents in Jamaica, East Flatbush and East Harlem.
