At least one man was killed and 19 people wounded in shootings in the Big Apple this weekend, as gun violence continues to skyrocket with no end in sight, police said.

The 42-year-old man was gunned down in broad daylight Saturday outside a Bronx church in a shooting that also left a female bystander with injuries, cops said.

Gunplay continued across the five boroughs into Sunday, when at least three others were shot and wounded early in the day.

The day’s violence began in South Harlem shortly after 4 a.m., when a 23-year-old man was shot in the back outside 40 West 115th Street, police sources said.

The man was taken to Harlem Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Shortly before 6:30 a.m., a 19-year-old man was shot in the back in the Mott Haven section of the Bronx and taken to Lincoln Hospital. His condition was not immediately available.

Police recovered multiple shell casings from the scene.

About a half-hour later, a 26-year-old man was shot in the right thigh by a gunman who fled in a gray sedan in the West Farms section of the Bronx.

The man took himself to St. Barnabas Hospital, where he was in stable condition.

Police reported 12 people shot in as many incidents on Friday and another five victims in four shootings on Saturday, including the fatal Bronx attack.

The five boroughs have seen a year-long uptick in violent crime and shootings.
