At least 13 people were injured and one man was killed in a series of separate shootings during a nearly 11-hour streak of violence across New York City, according to police.

Shootings occurred in all five boroughs of the city. Among the victims was a 74-year-old woman sitting on a bench, a woman taking her dog for a walk and a mother and her teenage daughter inside a bodega, according to the New York Police Department.

Police suspect that two of the shootings were committed by the same pair of bicycle-riding gunmen.

No arrests were announced in any of the shootings.

Gunfire erupted around 8:45 p.m. Sunday outside a bodega in the city's Bronx borough, sending stray bullets through a window of the corner store that hit a 46-year-old woman and her 13-year-old daughter, according to the NYPD. The mother, according to police, was grazed in the chin, while her daughter was shot in the hand.

Investigators believe the shooting occurred during a dispute outside the bodega and two possible suspects fled the scene on bicycles, according to police.

Around the same time, a 22-year-old woman walking her dog several blocks from the Bronx bodega was shot in the leg, police said. The woman was taken to the hospital in stable condition, police said.
