Fourteen people were shot — two fatally — Tuesday into early Wednesday as gun violence continued to rattle the city, cops said.

Among the victims was a nurse who was blasted in the shoulder just after 9 a.m. Tuesday in Red Hook near Bay and Clinton Streets — just moments after taking her driving test, according to surces.

The woman in her 50s was transported to Methodist Hospital, where she was treated for the graze wound. She was not believed to be the intended target, cops said.

Hours earlier, a drive-by shooter in a white sedan fired at a 43-year-old man, striking him in the left leg on Jackson Avenue near East 152nd Street in the Bronx around 2 a.m. before fleeing, according to police.

Late Tuesday night, a a 33-year-old man was blasted in the torso on Van Siclen Avenue near Livonia Avenue in Brownsville around 11 p.m., cops said.

He was taken to Brookdale University Hospital Medical Center by private means, and simply described hearing shots and feeling pain.

About a half-hour earlier, a 42-year-old man was shot in the right hand and a 46-year-old woman was blasted in the right leg around on the grounds of the Marcy Houses on Marcy Avenue near Ellery Street, cops said.

Both are believed to be innocent bystanders and cops believe the shooter — who is still on the loose — was aiming for someone else.

Both were taken to Bellevue Hospital in stable condition.

A few dozen shell casings could be found on the sidewalk nearby, according to police sources.

Around 9:30 p.m., Dahmel Miller, 23, was blasted in the stomach and buttocks inside a building on Vernon Boulevard near 40th Avenue, on the grounds of the Queensbridge Houses, cops said.

Surveillance video from the lobby indicates Miller, of Brooklyn, was shot somewhere between the front door and the first-floor staircase, according to cops.

He managed to make it up to the third-floor hallway, where he was found unconscious, cops said.

He was taken to NewYork-Presbyterian Weill Cornell Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

The shooter remains at large.

The other fatal shooting victim Tuesday was Christopher Campbell, 20, shot around 3 p.m. on Far Rockaway Boulevard near Gerson Court in Far Rockaway, cops said.

He was taken to St. John’s Episcopal Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, cops said.

A 19-year-old man was also shot in the leg and a 21-year-old woman was struck in the leg and ankle during the gunplay, cops said. They were both listed in stable condition at Jamaica Hospital Medical Center.

A total of seven shootings with 12 victims were reported on Tuesday alone, according to preliminary figures released by the NYPD.

On that day in 2019, only one shooting was reported, cops said.
