Another violent night across New York City with seven people shot over the course of just three hours.

NEW YORK CITY (WABC) -- It was another violent night across New York City, with seven people shot over the course of just three hours Sunday into Monday.

One of those victims is in critical condition after being shot near a basketball court in Queens.

The 26-year-old man was shot in the face outside the Queensbridge Houses in Long Island City around 9:45 p.m.

So far, no arrests have been made in that incident.

About 45 minutes later, police say a 37-year-old man was shot in the leg during a dispute with another man outside 2930 West 30th Street in Coney Island, Brooklyn.

He was taken to Lutheran Hospital in stable condition.

An hour later, around 11:30 p.m., two men shot outside the Redfern Houses at 14-75 Beach Channel Drive in Far Rockaway, Queens.

Police say a 32-year-old man was shot in each leg, while a 26-year-old man was shot in the chest.

Both were taken to Jamaica Hospital in stable condition.

Then, an hour after that, two men were shot at 65 East 19th Street in Flatbush, Brooklyn.

Authorities say a 41-year-old was shot in the chest, and a 29-year-old was shot in the leg.

Both were taken to Kings County Hospital in stable condition.

Around the same time as that shooting, around 12:40 a.m., a man was shot in the stomach outside the Unity Plaza Houses on Blake Avenue in East New York, Brooklyn.

He is in stable condition.

The string of shootings comes less than a week after seven other people were shot in just one hour, including a 12-year-old girl.
