Was the murder of a young reporter a case of mistaken identity?

Two men were killed and a third wounded in shootings in Manhattan and the Bronx overnight, cops said Sunday.

Just before midnight, police responded to a 911 call of a wounded man inside of 110 East 99th Street in the Lexington Houses, police said.

The unidentified man was lying face down in the stairwell unconscious and unresponsive with a gunshot wound to the torso, cops said. 

Multiple shell casings were found in the hallway, police sources said.

The man was pronounced dead on the scene at 11:55 p.m., cops said.

The second fatal shooting came around 2:30 a.m. in the Bronx, when a 32-year-old man was struck in the chest in front of 1203 Westchester Avenue, cops said.

The victim, whose identity wasn’t immediately released, was taken to Lincoln Hospital and declared dead at 3 a.m.

Police were looking for video of the crime. 

Meanwhile, a 26-year-old man suffered a gunshot wound near East 4th Walk and the FDR Drive around 4:30 a.m., when a stranger tried to snatch his phone, cops said.

The man said he began running away but then heard a gunshot and felt a sharp pain in his right leg, police said.

He brought himself to Mount Sinai Beth Israel and was expected to survive.
