The gunshots rang out around 4 a.m. at the intersection of East 168th Street and Morris Avenue, fatally striking a 31-year-old in the head, according to cops. He was pronounced dead on the scene.

A second man suffered bullet wounds in his neck, arm and back, cops said. He was rushed to Lincoln Hospital in critical condition but later died, police said.

He was described as being in his 30s.
