Woman Shot in the Back in Stapleton, NYPD Says

STATEN ISLAND — A woman was shot in the back on a Stapleton street Thursday morning, NYPD officials said.

The 23-year-old woman, whose name wasn't immediately released, was shot near Hudson and Cedar streets about 12:15 a.m., an NYPD spokesman said.

She was treated at Richmond University Medical Center, where she's listed in stable condition, the spokesman said.

Investigators don't know who shot her or what the motive was, police said. The woman wasn't cooperating with their investigation, police said.

The Thursday morning shooting comes four days after another about two blocks away that wounded two teen boys, ages 16 and 17, police said.

There had been no arrests in that shooting as of Thursday morning, police said.
