Police are investigating the city's first two homicides of the year, which happened hours apart early on Wednesday.

A 17-year-old boy was found shot in the chest around 3 a.m. on Bushwick Avenue in Brooklyn.

He was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Police say the first homicide of the year happened about two hours earlier at around 1 a.m. in Queens.

Officers answered a call of a man stabbed inside a house in Jamaica.

When officers arrived, they found a 22-year-old man who had been stabbed in the chest several times.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

Last year, the city's first homicide wasn't recorded until January 3.
