Several shootings and stabbings were reported across the city this weekend.
According to police, most of the violence this weekend was centered in Brooklyn.  
A stabbing was reported in Williamsburg and a shooting in Brownsville overnight.  
The stabbing took place on Graham Avenue near McKibbon Street just before 5 a.m.  
Police say a man who is believed to be in his 30s was stabbed multiple times. He was taken to the hospital in serious conditions.  
Meanwhile in Brownsville, around 3:30 a.m. a 33-year-old man was shot in the foot in front of 365 Sackman St., police say. The man is expected to survive.  
No arrests have been made in either incident.  
Police say there were also two fatal shootings Sunday in Brooklyn.  
The first shooting happened near the corner of East 35th Street and Church Avenue in East Flatbush. Police say Donovan Davy, 45, was shot and killed around 12:30 a.m.  
Hours later in Brownsville, police say Waleek Watford, 31, was killed inside 301 Sutter Ave. Police say Watford was found with both gunshot and stab wounds around 10:40 a.m. Sunday.  
Meanwhile, on Saturday, police received a 911 call about shots fire near Broadway and Lorimer streets. When police arrived on the scene, they saw three cars speeding off.  
Police say shortly after, they approached who they believed to be the driver’s near the corner of Meekr and Vanderhort avenues.  
The NYPD says two officers asked the driver of a white Honda CRV to turn off the engine, but instead they say he stepped on the gas and hit an officer who was standing in front of the car.

A short time later, police say a 21-year-old man, who they believe was the driver, showed up at the hospital with a bullet in his chest.
