Over the weekend 25 shootings occurred in four of the city's boroughs, including at least four in Queens.

A hot weekend in the city was also a violent one.

In less than 48 hours 25 people were reportedly shot, six of which died.

Gun violence occurred in all of the city’s boroughs except for Staten Island, with four shootings in Queens, according to the Daily News.

A 21-year-old man was struck in the leg at 12:10 a.m. Sunday at the Ravenswood Houses in Astoria, reported the Daily News. The same day a 35-year-old man came to Jamaica Hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg.

This weekend’s gun violence is 5 percent of this year’s approximately 440 shootings, according to ABC New York, but is a 23 percent decline from the 574 shot through this time last year.
