Two men were killed and another wounded in three early Friday shootings across New York City, police said. 

In the most recent incident, a 39-year-old man was shot in the head at the corner of Miller Avenue and Fulton Street in Cypress Hills around 5:20 a.m., authorities said. 

He was pronounced dead at the scene. 

The victim, whose name has not been released pending family notification, has nine prior arrests and may be a gang member, according to police sources. 

An 18-year-old man, identified as Ameen Johnson, was gunned down earlier in the morning on East 172nd Street near Rosedale Avenue in the Unionport section of the Bronx, cops said.

Johnson was discovered around 12:45 a.m. with a gunshot wound to his back and shoulder. 

He was taken to Jacobi Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. 

The circumstances of that slaying were unclear. 

About 45 minutes later, a 23-year-old man was shot during a fight with four men inside a white sedan, possibly a Mercedes, on West 207th Street near Vermilyea Avenue in Inwood, cops said. 

One man got out of the car and allegedly blasted the victim in the leg and stomach. Then he got back in the car and the group drove off, police said. 

The victim was taken to Columbia University Medical Center by private means, with non-life-threatening injuries. 

No arrests have been made in connection with any of the shootings.
