At least four people were shot — one left in critical condition — as soaring gun violence continued across the Big Apple overnight, cops said. 

The latest incident unfolded around 2:50 a.m. on 39th Avenue near 103rd Street, where multiple people pulled up on scooters and opened fire — striking a 24-year-old man three times, authorities said. 

The victim was taken to Elmhurst Hospital Center with life-threatening injuries, cops said. 

About an hour earlier, a 25-year-old man was blasted in the chest at Frederick Douglass Boulevard and West 133rd Street in Harlem, police said. 

He was taken to Harlem Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. 

The gunman, who was wearing all black, fled east on West 134th Street. 

In Coney Island around 12:15 a.m., a 38-year-old man was shot in the left hand at 31st Street and Mermaid Avenue, authorities said.

He reported hearing shots and feeling pain, and was taken to NYU Langone Hospital — Brooklyn with non-life-threatening injuries.

Meanwhile, hours earlier in the Mount Hope section of the Bronx, a 22-year-old man was standing on East 175th Street near Walton Avenue around 7:10 p.m. Monday when someone opened fire, striking him in the left side of the torso, police said.

He was taken to BronxCare Health System by private means. 

Shots were also fired during a mugging around 11 p.m. at the corner of 63rd Road and 98th Place in Rego Park — but the 26-year-old victim was not struck, authorities said. 

However, the three suspects took off with $3,000, a cellphone, a Louis Vuitton cross-body bag, and a bank card, police said. 

Medical professionals at Elmhurst Hospital Center determined that the victim was not shot.

The muggers took off in a silver SUV, cops said.
