A 25-year-old woman was grazed in the neck by a bullet. She was taken to St. Luke’s Hospital, where she was expected to recover, according to cops and the sources.

The perps, two of them on CitiBikes, fled north on Lenox Avenue, the sources said.

Hours earlier, a 36-year-old man with multiple gunshot wounds was found lying unconscious next to 593 Oak Terrace in Mott Haven just after 4 p.m., the NYPD said.

He was pronounced dead at Lincoln Hospital, and the circumstances of the murder are unclear, according to police.

At around the same time in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, a 21-year-old man was shot in the chest, cops said.
