NEW YORK — Authorities say at least 20 people were shot across New York City over the weekend, four of them fatally.

Among those injured were a 10-year-old boy and a 25-year-old man. They were shot Saturday on Brooklyn's Coney Island and are in stable condition.

Police say it was the third weekend in June when at least a dozen people were struck by bullets.

They are seeking tips from the public as they investigate.

About 600 new officers are graduating from the Police Academy on Monday. They will partner with veteran officers and be sent out to target the most violent, crime-ridden neighborhoods.
