Two men, reportedly wearing ski masks, went to a fifth floor apartment at 219 Kingsborough 2nd Walk near Rochester Avenue in Brooklyn on Sunday at about 1:30pm. There, some type of altercation ensued with residents of the apartment, resulting in a 43yr old man, who was inside the apartment, being shot twice by the masked men.
Responding medics were seen performing CPR on the victim, who had blood visible on his forehead, as they rushed him out of the building to nearby Interfaith Hospital. Unfortunately, he could not be saved.
Family and friends of the victim were seen crying outside of the building, as they were being guided into Police cars at the scene while the FDNY Ambulance tore away down the street, presumably to be taken to the hospital to be with their loved one.
The two attackers escaped on foot and were last seen running down Pacific Street. As of 4:30pm today, Authorities were not able to say whether any arrests were made nor was the identity of the victim released.
The brazen early afternoon Homicide followed two other shootings in the borough. At about 4:30am, a 28yr old man was taken to Woodhull Hospital by private means after he was shot in the leg in front of a Mural featuring Harriet Tubmam and other notable African Americans on Herkimer Street, just a few feet away from Nostrand Avenue. He was listed in stable condition. Then at about 6:20am, a 27yr old man was taken to the hospital after he was shot outside of Delroy’s Jamaica Bar and Lounge at 14 Duryea Place. He was also listed in stable condition.
