2 Men Found Tied Up & Shot Dead In Bed-Stuy Basement

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — Police in Brooklyn are investigating a home invasion that left 2 people dead in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

The stepfather of one of the victims arrived to find the home on Pulaski Street ransacked. He discovered his stepson and another man dead in the basement.

Authorities said the two men were tied up with duct tape and had sustained gunshot wounds to the head. EMS pronounced them dead at the scene just after 3 p.m.

Neighbors told 1010 WINS’ Al Jones they were shocked by the violence even though they admitted the block was a rough one.

One man said he suspected drug deals were going on in the house where the killings occurred.

“There was all kind of different people in and out. Different guys…was in and out all day long,” he said.

Taquan Bostick said one of the men killed was his cousin, who he described as a “family man.”

“He has three children and one on the way. He’s a married man. He’s a good man. He didn’t mean no harm to nobody,” Bostick said.

Police have not made any arrests and are still on the scene investigating.

    people leave ignorant racist comments on sites like this because they have no order or control in their real lives. Get a grip douch bag, we dont know what color the shooters are!!!! P.S. white people commit crimes too, and your about to be (if not already) the minority in this country so watch who you talk that trash too because you mouth might write a check that your ass cant cash!!

    WOW, i am disgusted by all of the comments. Who cares if the victims were black, white, purple or green they were human. They had family and friends who loved them and their lives were taking by senseless violence. One of the victims were a very good friend of mine and it is sad to see that after reading a tragic story this is what you decide to post. I could join the argument but when u argue with idiots from a distance you all look stupid. So instead i will have respect for the victims family and tell you people to GET A LIFE.

    • Trudy

      First of all, I want to express my condolences since it seems that you were a good friend of the victim. I live around the corner from the crime scene and I know a lot of really wonderful your men and women around here, that still involve themselves with drugs. You might know more about his involvement, but I just want to point out that a lot of good people make really poor choices. Unfortunately some have to pay with their lives.

    • Bedstuy101

      Agreed, these comments are disgusting! Was the identity of the second victem ever realised? I fear it might have been a friend of mine but I’m really hoping it wasn’t. I haven’t heard from him since the day this horrible situation took place

  • Jake

    Black like most of the time.

      What kind of a racist ass comment is that. How do you know the shooters were black. When there is a serial killer do you see or hear people say oh it’s a white guy as usual. I’ve never heard of a black serial killer but plenty of white ones. Seriously keep that racist BS else where you really showed your maturity with that comment.

      • Youfool

        How do we know the shooters were black? Let me give you a hint, Tyrone – “Taquan Bostick said one of the men killed was his cousin.” Do you know of a White mother giving her son a stupid name like “Taquan?”

        Never heard of a black serial killer? You’re an idiot. The latest killings in the DC sniper case were committed by black thugs. They killed 10 people and put DC on the edge for 2 months. And what about Wayne Williams, the black guy who killed all the kids in Atlanta? There are many, many more.

        I would suggest you put down the crack pipe.

    What color or race were the victims?
