At least seven people were shot — one fatally — in the city’s latest round of gun violence overnight, cops said Monday.

The deadly incident came around 12:40 a.m. Monday at Morgan Avenue near Stagg Street in East Williamsburg when a gunman approached two men, 33 and 38, sitting in a Ford Mustang. 

The suspect demanded property from the younger man — who was sitting in the passenger seat — and blasted him in the back when he refused, according to police. 

Then he allegedly pistol-whipped the older man, the driver, and snatched a gold chain from him, while also swiping a gold chain from the passenger, cops said. 

The older victim drove straight to Woodhull Medical Center, where the younger man was pronounced dead, cops said. The driver suffered minor injuries, according to police. 

The gunman remains at large. 

Hours later, around 3:30 a.m., a 31-year-old man walked into the Kings County Hospital Center with a gunshot wound to the left knee. It’s unclear where he was shot, and cops describe him as highly uncooperative. 

About 45 minutes earlier, two men were shot during a dust-up in the parking lot of Starlet’s of New York, a strip club in Astoria, around 2:45 a.m., cops said. 

A gunman from one group shot at the other group — striking a 25-year-old man in the right arm and a 32-year-old man in the left leg, cops said. Both injuries were non-life-threatening. 

Two men were also shot during a dispute with another group at 189th Street and 119th Avenue in St. Albans around 12:30 a.m., cops said. 

A 23-year-old man was shot in the left arm and grazed in the chest, and a 21-year-old man was shot in the left leg and hip, police said. 

They went to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center in stable condition. 

And around 11:15 p.m. Sunday, a 36-year-old man was blasted in the right leg at Audubon Avenue and West 173rd Street in Washington Heights, police said.

The suspect took off in an Escalade. 

The victim is listed in stable condition at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, cops said.

The incidents capped a weekend of heavy gun violence across the Big Apple.
