Three men were fatally shot in broad daylight over five deadly hours in Manhattan and Brooklyn Tuesday, as the city grapples with a rise in gun violence.

Though homicides were down by nearly 19% in the first 30 days of the year, police have responded to 94 shootings with 104 victims — up more than 32% from the first 30 days of 2020. The city has seen an increase in every major crime category except murder in January, according to NYPD statistics.

Davantay Butts and the woman, both 26, were walking near the corner of E. 103rd St. and Third Ave. about 11:15 a.m. when the gunman ran up and began shooting, cops said.
