On Monday, two men were gunned down in Brooklyn — one believed to be in his 20s who was killed at East 51st Street and Remsen Avenue in East Flatbush around 2 p.m., cops said. 

The victim was walking when two men got out of a vehicle and shot him before taking off, authorities said. 

A woman was also shot in the arm in East Harlem, but was able to walk to the hospital in stable condition.Citizen

He was rushed with “gunshot wounds about the body” to the Kings County Hospital Center, where he was pronounced dead. 

Hours earlier, another man — identified Tuesday as Ahmad Perkins, 45 — was shot in front of a home on Empire Boulevard near Lamont Court in Crown Heights, police said. 

Perkins, who was shot in the head around 10:40 a.m., was pronounced dead on scene.

Police had no suspect information in that case.

The motives for all three shootings remain under investigation.
