Even the snow couldn’t slow bullets from flying in the city over the weekend.

A 22-year-old man was fatally shot on Staten Island, and four other people — including a 16-year-old — were wounded by gunfire, all in separate incidents, cops said Sunday.

The dead man had been at the intersection of Cebra Avenue and Victory Boulevard in Tompkinsville around 5 p.m. Saturday when he was approached by a gunman who shot him in the head, the back and the left arm, police said.

The wounded man was taken to Richmond University Medical Center and died at around 8:30 p.m., according to police. His name wasn’t immediately released.

Police only said the gunman was wearing a red jacket.

A few hours later, in Brooklyn, a 16-year-old boy was walking at 987 Myrtle Ave. around 11:30 p.m. when he heard shots and was struck once in the right leg by a bullet, cops said.

He was taken to Bellevue Hospital and is expected to survive, cops said. The teen told cops he didn’t know the person who shot him, sources said.

Then at 1:30 a.m. Sunday about a mile away, a 31-year-old man was shot twice after leaving a party, cops and police sources said.

The man was shot in the left arm and left knee outside 303 Johnson Ave. in East Williamsburg and taken to Kings County Hospital in stable condition, police said.

The victim told cops he heard shots and tried to run, police said.

An 18-year-old man also walked into Montefiore Medical Center around 4 a.m. and said he had been sitting in the backseat of a double-parked vehicle near the corner of 241st Street and White Plains road in the Wakefield section of The Bronx when he was shot in his left shoulder, police said. He wasn’t cooperating with cops, a police spokeswoman said.

Then at 5:16 a.m., a 36-year-old man walked into Richmond University Medical Center on Staten Island with a gunshot wound to his left hand.

He said a group of males attempted to rob him and that one of them fired a weapon, striking him, according to police. But he did not provide a location for the shooting, cops said.
