One person was shot in the Bronx and five others were slashed or stabbed during a Queens bar brawl overnight, police said.

In the shooting incident, a 27-year-old man was struck multiple times in the lower body on the 2300 block of Boston Road at around 8:50 p.m. Friday, cops said.

The victim was transported to Jacobi Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries, police said. The suspected shooter was taken into custody and charges are pending, the NYPD said.

In Queens, five men were slashed or stabbed early Saturday when a brawl broke out at 43 Bar & Grill at 4306 43rd St. in Sunnyside at around 1:40 a.m. Saturday, cops said.

An argument between two groups — which spilled outside — turned violent when one individual used a broken bottle to slash and stab five others, authorities said.

The injuries were not life-threatening, cops said. A 34-year-old man was slashed in the neck and a 41-year-old was slashed in the face. Three 29-year-old victims were slashed in the right ear, stabbed in the stomach and suffered lacerations.

Three of the victims were transported to Elmhurst Hospital and one was taken to New York-Presbyterian, Queens. A fifth person declined medical attention, cops said.

Police were questioning a “person of interest” Saturday morning, the department said.
