Four shootings in Brooklyn and the Bronx left two men dead and three others injured during a bloody Saturday night, police said.

Police responded to a building on East 17th Street near Newkirk Avenue around 7:30 p.m. in Midwood, Brooklyn, and found 62-year-old Daniel Romulus dead from a gunshot wound to the chest in his apartment, cops said.

He was rushed to King County Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Almost three hours earlier, a 32-year-old woman was shot in her right cheek near a staircase in an apartment building on Ocean Avenue near Glenwood Road — also in Midwood.

Police say it’s unknown if she was an intended target. The woman was also taken to Kings County Hospital and is in stable condition.

In the Bronx, a 20-year-old man was shot in the back of the head on East 183 Street near Webster Avenue in Fordham Heights shortly before 9:30 p.m. He was pronounced dead at the scene, according to cops.
