NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – Two men were killed in separate Brooklyn shootings Tuesday night—the same night a third man was killed in the borough in a confrontation with police.

The first shooting was at 6:05 p.m. at East 92nd Street and Church Avenue in East Flatbush, police said.

A 66-year-old man and a 58-year-old man were found shot inside a vehicle in what the Daily News reports was a drive-by shooting.

The 66-year-old man was taken to Brookdale Hospital with multiple gunshot wounds to the torso. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The 58-year-old man was rushed to Kings County Hospital in critical condition.

No arrests have been reported in the shooting.

Hours later, a 28-year-old man was found shot on Thomas Boyland Street, near Dean Street, in Brownsville.

Police said the man was found shot around 10:40 p.m. and was taken to Interfaith Hospital with a gunshot wound to the torso. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.

He was later identified as 28-year-old Kevin Moore of Brooklyn.

The deadly shootings came the same night that the NYPD fatally shot a man who they say refused to drop a gun in Crown Heights.

That shooting unfolded after a man was found wounded shortly before 9:30 p.m.

Police located the alleged shooter hiding behind a tree and pleaded with him to drop the weapon, according to the NYPD.

As many as 10 officers opened fire on the man when he didn't drop the weapon, killing him, police said.

An illegal gun was recovered at the scene, according to the NYPD, which is investigating the shooting.
