Three Recovering From Gunshot Wounds After Attempted Robbery

EAST FLATBUSH, N.Y. (CBS 2) – Three people are recovering from gunshot wounds as police continue to investigate a possible attempted robbery in Brooklyn on Saturday night.

Sources said the three victims were being robbed outside of a baby shower near the intersection of Church Avenue and E. 48th Street in East Flatbush around 9:30 p.m. Authorities are unsure if the victims were part of the baby shower or knew anyone from the baby shower.

Witnesses said one of the victims was a 14-year-old girl who was shot in the head. The two other victims were a man and a woman. One witness described the scene as chaotic.

“Inside, everyone was screaming. Kids were all over the place. People were just going crazy,” she said.

Witnesses said one of the adult victims was shot in the leg while the other was shot in the stomach or side. The three victims were all rushed to Kings County Hospital where they are all expected to be okay.

Police have not made any arrests and are still looking for who fired the shots and why.

One witness summed up the sad event.

“It was just a baby shower that just went sour,” she said.

    “It was just a baby shower that went sour.” Sure it was. Just one of those things, you know? Another one of life’s unavoidable inconveniences. Notice that when any other ethnicity else gets together for a celebration, armed violence, robbery, and mayhem are not all but guaranteed. These barbarian monsters need to be rounded up and walled off in some internment camp or repatriated to Da Muddalan’. And I suspect it’s going to happen sooner rather than later.

    Another community turned from respectable human behavior to some ghetto slum where residents shoot at each other.

    And by the way, you black people just assume that it was blacks involved in this felony. I didn’t hear any white people saying it was you. Aren’t you a little hard on yourselves? Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty? Or did your president include that in our society that he wants to “change”?

    No thanks. I liked it better when baby showers didn’t include gunplay.

    HARLEM GOING H.A.M needs a history lesson.You should really invest in a really good history class. First of all, you should learn that “your” people are the ones that sold your ancestors into slavery. The white man did not come over and scoop up a bunch and toss them into a ship. So if you and the rest of the black men in America want to be angry, then be angry at your ancestors in Africa that sold you. Also, I hate to break it to you, but African Americans are not he only race in the world to ever be used as slaves. Did you know that the Alba, Scots, Irish and Pics have been the longest race held in slavery. GASP! That’s right, a WHITE race has been enslaved longer then the African Americans were. ALSO white slavery was alive in America as well. Thomas Burton recorded in his Parliament Diary 1656-1659 vol. 4 pp. 253-274 a debate in the English Parliament focusing on the selling of British whites into slavery in the New World. (aka AMERICA) Close to TWO-THIRDS of the original colony came in against their will, to be used as slaves. It’s a shame this information will always remain OUT of the text books in our local schools.

    The point of this my friend, is that the slavery excuse is old, unfounded and well, quite boring. You didn’t suffer, your grandparents didn’t suffer, your great-grandparents didn’t suffer and well, quite far back didn’t suffer. You weren’t the only race to be enslaved and your own kind is what put you in that position. This is the main issue of your race today, you are too concerned with crying about what happened to your ancestors and using disbelief to justify your disgusting and unruly actions today. As far as your question about racism being alive today, I absolutely believe there is. However the tables have turns as I see and experience more racism from blacks to whites, then I do from whites to blacks. Read the statistics on the amount of hate crimes committed and that may shut you up.

    A baby shower at 930 on saturday night? a baby shower. with kids all over. And one witness said “it was a baby shower that just went sour”. in my neighborhood, with my family we have baby showers on saturday/sunday afternoons and if there was a shooting we’d be shocked, embarassed and dare not say a baby shower went sour. That sounds so acceptable. I say let them kill eachother. Let’s stay out of it until they finish “their” war. don’t put our policman in the way of it and danger their lives. What a wasteful ,disgraceful drain on society. My tax dollars which I pay through working a JOB contribute to these animals’ housing and food. It’s gone too far. I wish I got to choose where my tax dollars were spent. I bet we all do. “They’d” all be on their a$$es in the street with no beat up lexus, stereo, rims and 4 inch nails paid for by “us”. Disgraceful beings!!

    ARE THEY LIKE THE ANIMALS THAT STOLE MILLIONS OF AFRICANS FOR FORCED LABOR, OR ARE THEY LIKE HILTER? IN HISTORY. YOU PEOPLE RAPED THE WORLD, AND CLAIM THAT YOU ARE BETTER THAN EVERYONE ELSE. YOU PEOPLE MAKE ME SICK. HOWEVER, YOUR PURPOSE ON EARTH IS TO SHOW THE GOOD PEOPLE HOW NOT TO BE.

    PS. EVERYTIME A TRAFFIC LIGHT MAKES YOU STOP OR ALLOWS YOU TO GO, JUST THINK OF THE BLACK GUY WHO INVENTED THE TRAFFIC LIGHT TO PROTECT YOU PEOPLES FROM HAVING AN ACCIDENT, YOU TWO LEGGED ABORTION.

    1. Jack Black says:

      According to Snopes, the black guy stole the idea of traffic lights from a jap.

    2. Had It With These Effing Spooks says:

      Jesus. I like peanut butter. A black guy invented peanut butter. But do you think that I should give depraved ghetto animals a pass because I like peanut butter? Enemies of society are enemies of society. America has been judging blacks based on the content of their character for around 50 years now, and guess what? Their character sucks and everybody damn well knows it.

  6. HARELM GOING H.A.M. says:

    IF YOU DIDNT KNOW, THE PLAGUE’S PLACE OF ORGIN WAS ON THE EUROPEAN’S SIDE OF THE BLOCK. I GUESS THE INDIANS MUST OF FELT THE SAME WAY

  7. fedupyt says:

    These kinds of monkeyshines DO NOT HAPPEN at white baby showers

  8. HARLEM GOING H.A.M says:

    YOU MUST BE TALKING ABOUT THOSE EUROPEANS THAT KILL ALL OF THE INDAINS. BLACKS COULD NEVER CATCH UP TO YOU PEOPLES WHEN IT COMES TO KILLING. HISTORY HAS RECORDED EUROPEANS’ CRIMES AGAINST EACHOTHER. FOR EXAMPLE TWO WORLD WARS FOR STARTERS. AFRICAN PEOPLE’S ENSLAVEMENT AND WIPING OUT THE INDAINS. YOU GOT A LOT OF NERVE.

    1. Way Cup says:

      HGHAM,

      Slavery was rampant in Africa well before Devil Whitey showed up.

  9. gg says:

    they kill each other with impunity…what is wrong with you people?? your culture is despicable!! But…any large nation that has an underclass has the same thing…but the killing is out of bounds here in the USA! Just stay out of my town, thats why people flee them!. The good people have enough trash around them that the violence comes with them! Theres one “section” near an affluent town by me…you got it! Robberies, muggings, etc!

    1. HARLEM GOING H.A.M. says:

      “YOU PEOPLE” HUH ARE THESE THE SAME PEOPLE WHO MURDER NEARLY ALL OF THE INDIANS AND PROVIDE THE LOGISTICS FOR SLAVERY? THERE’S ALL TYPES OF YOU PEOPLE. FOR EXAMPLE: YOU HAVE THE YOU PEOPLE WHO WEAR WHITE HOODS TO CONCEAL THEIR IDENTITY, THEN YOU THE HAVE THE YOU PEOPLES THAT WEAR BLUE UNIFORMS AND RAPE DRUNK GIRLS, AND LASTLY , WE CAN’T FORGET ABOUT THE YOU PEOPLES THAT SHOOT 41 TIMES WHEN A GUY TRIES TO SHOW THEM HIS ID. PLEASE DEFINE YOU PEOPLE, YOU ARE A COVERT KLANS MAN, ANOTHER TERM FOR COWARD.
      PS. ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT THE PEOPLES THAT RISK SKIN CANCER TO GET A TAN AND CALL THOSE OTHER PEOPLES THE N WORD? I’M CONFUSED, PLEASE EXPLAIN

        This goof misspelled Harlem. But it’s okay, he has a “deram.”

  10. craiggy says:

    in response to jack black, most racist comments ever, shame on you

    1. Jack Black says:

      Most racist? It seems all the comments here are in agreement with my post. It’s sad, but true. Does any other race right here in NYC have as many shootings in their community every day? Mexicans are poorer than blacks but hey are not shooting each other up. At least Mexicans try to earn a living by doing day labor jobs.By the next generation the Mexicans will have surpassed blacks as a whole in terms of income and education. I am not Mexican.

      1. Bob White says:

        Jerk Black,

        Mexicans aren’t shooting each other up? Really?! Koff * Drug War * Koff.

      2. Jack Black says:

        Bob White, you are correct. Mexicans are killing each other over there because it’s business. I could care less if they wiped each other out in Mexico b/c I don’t live there. Over here, blaks kill each other b/c someone cut the line at KFC.

  11. Jack Black says:

    You stupid whites brought them over for free labor.Now we all have to pay the rest of our lives to these chimps to raise them. Terrible investment.

    1. gg says:

      Lincoln was trying to ship them out but he got shot…..

      1. Jack Black says:

        Lincoln was shot because he did not ship them out fast enough!

  12. LOL over this says:

    Get rid of lawmakers that allow voters to be lambs to the slaughter. Arm yourselves as your forefathers did. Its your right. Use it or lose it.

  13. RoscoeNY says:

    This is par for the ghetto. News would be if there were no shootings.
