Halloween violence plagued the New York City area on Thursday where at least two people were killed while four others were injured.

While kids and families throughout the city were enjoying a night out trick-or-treating, others were engaging in a night of shootouts and stabbings that spanned over a five-hour timespan, according to the New York Daily News and the New York Post.

A 46-year-old man was shot several times while he was sitting in a car at Linden Boulevard in Brooklyn and died after he was rushed to Brookdale University Hospital. An 18-year-old man was also shot in Brooklyn and later died of his wounds at the Kings County Hospital 

The shooters for each of the killings were still on the loose as of early Friday and the police were searching for them.

Just before 11:30 p.m., a person was shot in the Brownsville area of Brooklyn and the victim was rushed to the Brookdale University Hospital where he died from gunshot wounds in his neck. 

In the East Flatbush area of Brooklyn, a woman stabbed her brother at around 7:30 p.m. and the police arrested her shortly after the incident.

The crime also extended to Queens where a man who was said to be in his 20s was shot at 148th street in Jamaica. At Beach Channel Drive and Rockaway Beach Boulevard, another man was shot and taken to Jamaica Hospital. That shooting occurred around 8: 12 p.m., according to the cops.

The four people who were injured during the night were expected to survive, as reported by the Daily News.
