    Following a weekend marked by gun violence that killed two people and injured 21 others, Mayor de Blasio on Monday vowed increased police activity in the 10 communities in which blood was spilled.

    “I don’t take any additional shootings lightly,” de Blasio told reporters. “I don’t take any additional crime lightly. We’re going to address it aggressively in each and every case.”

    De Blasio said NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton will boost resources to the precinct commands that cover the affected neighborhoods, which include East New York and Crown Heights in Brooklyn; Jamaica, Queens; the Mott Haven and Tremont sections of the Bronx; and Harlem.

    “The whole notion is to quickly and agilely make moves and adjustments, and that’s being done as we speak to stay ahead of the problem,” de Blasio said.

    A total of nine people were shot in five separate shootings in Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx and Queens on Saturday. The violence escalated on Sunday, when 14 more people were hit in eight shootings across four boroughs…

    Three arrests were made in the weekend shootings — one on As of Sunday, there were 862 shootings in the city this year, an increase of 77 incidents over the same period last year, or a spike of about 10%.

    The increase in gunplay comes as use of the stop-and-frisk tactic has dropped significantly.

    The NYPD has also recently adjusted resources to respond to areas of concern. On July 7, Bratton transferred 313 cops from desk duty to trouble zones in an effort to quell shootings in those areas.

    The results were mixed: Shootings in the 10 targeted precincts in Bratton’s “Summer All Out” program fell from 83 during the five weeks before the redeployment began to 62 in the five weeks following the influx of cops. But three of those precincts saw an increase in shootings.
