The NYPD reported that at least 17 people in New York City had been shot on Monday, the New York Post confirmed Tuesday.

Law enforcement sources said the tally of those shot is substantial, considering the shootings occurred early in the week.

"Those numbers would be high for a Friday or Saturday, but for a Monday they are astronomical," a high-ranking Brooklyn officer said.

While sources said no borough was exempt from the gun violence, Brooklyn saw the most, with 10 shooting incidents and a total of 12 victims.

  • Seven of those shot in Brooklyn were hit in five separate incidents. A 20-year-old man was killed.
  • In the Canarsie neighborhood, five people were shot during three separate shootings in a span of 15 minutes.
  • Another 20-year-old man was shot and killed in the lobby of a Brooklyn New York City Housing Authority development.
  • Two people were shot in Manhattan.
  • One person was shot in each of the remaining boroughs.

? Monday's violence followed a 15-hour stretch over the weekend from midday Saturday into Sunday where another 15 people in New York City were shot, including a one-year-old boy.
