EAST HARLEM — Two people were shot about 15 minutes and a block apart in East Harlem Tuesday afternoon, authorities said.

Fifteen minutes later, a man was shot in the foot near 1641 Madison Ave., just a block away, fire officials said. 

Authorities couldn't confirm that the two shootings were related. Police said the shootings were under investigation.
