Five people were hurt — two critically — in four shootings that erupted across the Big Apple overnight, authorities said.

A 19-year-old man is clinging to life after he was shot in the head on Claremont Parkway near Crotona Avenue in the Crotona Park East section of the Bronx around 4:30 a.m. Friday, authorities said.

He was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital in critical condition, police said.

The suspect fled after the shooting, and the motive was not immediately known.

About two hours earlier, a 56-year-old man also suffered life-threatening injuries in a shooting on the grounds of NYCHA’s Queensbridge Houses on 12th Street in Long Island City, cops said.

The victim was involved in a dispute when he was shot once in the chest, police said.

A man in his 20s, with a dark complexion, last seen wearing all black with white sneakers, fled after the shooting, cops said.

In the earliest Friday morning shooting, around 12:20 a.m., a 21-year-old man was blasted in the stomach and a 22-year-old man in the left foot on Gates Avenue near Lewis Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant, authorities said.
