    New York City turned into the Wild West as a series of shootings claiming four lives and injuring 37 others erupted amid Fourth of July celebrations.

    The shocking wave of violence came as the city was reeling from ongoing anti-police brutality protests, weeks of lockdown orders prompted by the coronavirus outbreak and soaring summer temperatures. Adding to the chaotic atmosphere, illegal fireworks exploded in all five boroughs throughout the night.

    In the first fatal shooting of the night, Jose Cepeda, a young father, was blasted in the chest a little after midnight Sunday in East New York, Brooklyn.

    Cepeda, 20, and a friend had a “little disagreement” in front of the victim’s home on Atkins Ave. near Pitkin Ave. that turned deadly, neighbor Natasha Ramsay told the Daily News.

    “The first one shot got him dead,” Ramsay, 42, said. “It’s so sad.”

    Medics rushed Cepeda to Brookdale University Hospital but he couldn’t be saved.

    That was just the first in a series of horrifying incidents that cop unions blamed on Mayor de Blasio and Council Speaker Corey Johnson, who last week passed an annual budget that shifted about $1 billion away from the NYPD, a move aimed at meeting activists’ demands for police reform.

    A 20-year-old man was fatally shot on a Brooklyn street early Sunday, cops said. The victim was blasted in the chest in front of a house on Atkins Ave. near Pitkin Ave. in East New York about 12:40 a.m., police said. The shooting came as the sky was lit up with illegal Fourth of July fireworks around the city. (Theodore Parisienne/for New York Daily News)
    “Criminals with guns fear no consequences,” the Police Benevolent Association tweeted Sunday, adding that the mayor, speaker “and all electeds” “owe their constituents an explanation.”

    “The health and safety of New Yorkers is our top priority, which is why we are drilling down on problem spots with the NYPD,” a City Hall spokesperson said in a statement.

    Johnson’s offices did not immediately answer a request for comment.

    There are no arrests in any of the incidents and investigations are ongoing, police said.

    The violence came as the city has been on edge following weeks of protests sparked by the May 25 death of Black Minneapolis man George Floyd at the hands of a white police officer.

    The shooters were taking advantage of an ongoing atmosphere of crisis, said Councilman Donovan Richards, who chairs the Council’s Public Safety Committee.

    “The people exploiting this moment are sensing the division on the ground and they’re totally taking advantage of the streets, without a doubt,” the Queens Dem told The News.

    “They sense division and therefore they understand they can take out their retribution on each other in ways they weren’t doing years ago because there was much more unity between the department and what was going on on the ground,” he added.

    This is what happens when you "defund the police". BLM is nothing but controlled opposition. If they were REAL, they would be focused on actual action instead of begging for acceptance from the same oppressing forces that are against you anyway for just existing. It's clear that they are around for the election and they are of the creation of the elites. BLM has done more to help Trump than it has ever done for black people. It has done NOTHING for black people

    How are you gonna tell the government aka the lawmakers to stop financing law enforcement. They basically are tossing money towards enforcing the laws. When you take that away, you pretty much are supporting anarchy. Being that many communities cant even police themselves, that's a problem. Why not go after the source of the problem which is the law? They never do that because that would mean calling out the lawmakers, government officials and etc.

    This is why I cant take certain people seriously. The folks that are saying that ahit 9 times out of 10 are not even from or live in the same communities whose law enforcement agencies they are asking to not receiving financial backing.

    It's clear that the police is behind this. They're sending a message to all of us. This is what happens when you let these agents run wild with their bullshyt. It gets innocent people killed. Same cowards speaking at both sides of the mouth and act like we cant see that shyt. That's why fukktards like Shaun king and van Jones are dangerous.
