The most recent shooting erupted around 7:30 a.m. Wednesday on Tiebout Avenue near East 182nd Street in Fordham Heights, cops said. 

A 42-year-old man was standing outside when he was slashed in the face and shot in the back by two gunmen who took off on a dark-colored scooter, authorities said. 

The victim was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The motive for the attack was unclear.
