At least five people were injured in three shootings in Manhattan and Brooklyn late Friday into Saturday, according to the NYPD.

In the most recent incident of gun violence, two men were shot at Irving Square Park near Halsey Street and Wilson Avenue in Bushwick at around 12:30 a.m., police said.

The victims were expected to survive, cops said. It’s unknown what led to the attack.

Earlier in Sunset Park, a 38-year-old man was critically injured when he was shot inside of a building on 58th Street near Eight Avenue at around 11 p.m., the NYPD said.

The circumstances of that attack were also unclear.

At around the same time in Inwood, two women were struck by bullets outside of a bar, police said.

The victims, ages 38 and 26, were each hit in their right thigh in front of El Jefe Sports Cantina on Dyckman Street, according to cops.

The 38-year-old was taken to Harlem Hospital and the 26-year-old woman was treated at St Barnabas Hospital in The Bronx, the NYPD said. Both were expected to survive.

The gunman fled in a black and white Acura RDX, according to cops.
