In the Bronx, cops responded to four separate shootings and discovered a Bronx man had been shot and killed in the Cambria Heights section of Queens. The victim, 33-year-old Jason Bragg, lived on Clay Avenue. Police say he was found lying on the pavement with a gunshot wound to the head.
Another man was shot and killed in the Bronx. Police say shots rang out early Sunday morning at 2766 University Ave. near Lehman College. The 24-year-old victim, Roderick Romney, was shot in the torso and was pronounced dead on arrival to Saint Barnabas Hospital.

Both victims were treated at hospitals and will recover. According to neighbors, they were on their way back from the Mott Playground when shots rang out.
