Shooting on W. 33rd

A gunman shot a guy on W. 33rd Street, cops say.

Police say they found the victim with one gunshot wound to his chest outside a housing complex near Neptune Avenue around 9:45 pm, before taking him to Lutheran hospital. Cops found six shell casings on the scene, the report says.

Three on one

Three jerks robbed a guy at gunpoint in a Bay 44th Street park on July 28, cops say.

The victim told cops he was sitting on a bench in the playground near Shore Parkway around 11:40 pm when the three snakes approached him from behind. One pointed a gun at him, while another put him in a chokehold, and the third stood lookout, police reported.

The gun-touting fiend said “give me all your s--- or I’ll shoot you,” while one of the jerks rifled through the victim’s pockets, swiping his keys and phone before all three fled, according to authorities.

Caught sleeping

Some sneak robbed a guy while he dozed on a Coney Island-bound Q train on July 29, cops say.

The victim told cops he boarded the Q at Atlantic Avenue around 3 am after having a few drinks, then fell asleep while in transit. According to the report, another passenger woke the victim up near the Brighton Beach stop, and he realized his phone had been swiped.

Bumpy ride

Some crook stole a cabbie’s phone on Surf Avenue on July 27, cops say.

The victim told cops he arrived at his passenger’s destination near W. 36th Street around 11:50 pm, when the goon started to argue with him over the fare. The lout then grabbed the driver’s phone, which was mounted on the dashboard, and fled, the report says.
