ANOTHER LIBERAL UTOPIA
Cops check the scene of a deadly gun battle at Bedford Ave. and Lenox Road in Brooklyn on Sunday.
Violence surged like the mercury Sunday, with three more fatalities from gun violence — and eight others wounded in shootings — bringing the total number of bullet-riddled in the city to 25 in less than 48 hours.
Only Staten Island was safe from the wide-ranging spray of gunfire and sickening weekend bloodshed. At least 12 people were blasted in Brooklyn, eight in the Bronx and another four in Queens. The sole person shot in Manhattan took several slugs to the chest and perished in broad daylight.
Sunday’s first fatality was Ivan Martinez, 21, who was approached around 3:25 a.m. by a 20-year-old gunman and a woman at E. 139th St. near Brook Ave. in the Bronx, police said.
The gunman shot Martinez once in the head and ran off with the woman.
She will never walk again.

“She can’t feel her legs. She has pain in her arms,” said her heartbroken mother Priscilla Mazyck, 46.
On Saturday night, a heroic 15-year-old girl in the Bronx dodged death and was shot in the leg as she pushed a toddler in a baby carriage to safety.
Cops are now hunting for one alleged gunman, Kevon Brown, 30, who shot at a pair of officers during the a Brooklyn melee.
