Two men were shot and killed in separate homicides in Tremont Friday, continuing one of the deadliest summers the Bronx has seen in years, authorities said.

A 60-year-old man succumbed to his injuries after he and two other victims – both of whom survived – were shot shortly after 2 a.m. in the 700 block of 179th Street, according to the NYPD.

About two and a half hours later, a 44-year-old man was shot to death in the 4200 block of Park Avenue,         police said.

The victims identities were not immediately released, and no arrests had been announced as of Friday evening.

Anyone with information is asked to call NYPD Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
