5 Injured In Prospect-Lefferts Gardens Shooting

BROOKLYN, NY (CBS 2) — Five people were injured in a shooting in the Prospect-Lefferts Gardens neighborhood in Brooklyn.

Shots rang out around 12:30 Sunday morning at the intersection of Nostrand Avenue and Fenimore Street. Police say it started over some sort of dispute.

Five people were injured including four men and one woman. They were all taken to Kings County Hospital. No word on their conditions.

As police investigate, the violence that unfolded on Fenimore Street is marked by the shot out back window of a van and plastic cups covering numerous shell casings in the street. Police are still looking for suspects.

This is the second gun battle in a Brooklyn neighborhood in less than 24 hours. Gunfire also rang out around 3:15 Saturday morning at a house party on Wyona Street in East New York, killing one man and injuring several others.

New York City Councilman Charles Barron says this never-ending violence has to end.

“You can’t keep shutting down youth centers,” said Barron. “You can’t keep a neighborhood this impoverished and not expect violence.”

    1. The Facts says:

      Your racist, anti-white comment has been noted. Does it make matters any better for anyone when you resort to name calling?

  9. QB says:

    Everybody always points to the ghetto when someone gets killed, it’s easier to point at the uneducated person who has nothing, not the “educated” person who is selling them these guns. Oh right we can’t blame the rich white guy cause he didn’t pull the trigger he just sold them the guns. Isn’t it such a coincidence we have the same conditions going on across the border in Mexico. You wanna laugh, laugh at these lame ass white kids that grow up in happy valley who have such a hard time coping with life that they commit mass murders.

    Barron: “you can’t keep shutting down youth centers” – BWAHAHA does this man have NO PRIDE whatsoever? How can someone this stupid be a spokesman for the black community? Oh wait….

    Tupac is chillin with them Martians. They done blast a hole into Olympus Mons using a super pulsed fiber laser. SpaceX gonna give it to ya. He the man–Charles F. Bolden, Jr.

  12. Jasha says:

    Agree with outlaw guns. Easy access to guns is a big part of the problem Get guns off the streets.

    1. Moon Them says:

      To the Suspect: You are now a FUGITIVE. You had better climb on a Spacecraft and head for the MOON. If you stay on Earth they’re going to hunt you down and take you down just like the animal that you are.

    2. tyrone says:

      JASHA YOU ARE A FOOL,GUNS WILL NEVER BE OFF THE STREETS,JUST LIKE DRUGS ARE ILLEGAL AND NEVER BEEN OFF THE STREETS,IT WONT HAPPEN

  13. Jack Black says:

    It’s a shame a lot of people feel good when they kill each other and we cannot express it aloud.

  14. pooh pooh says:

    Of course, deflection is his game.

  15. OUTLAW GUNS says:

    GUNS SHOULD HAVE BEEN OUTLAWED 50 YEARS AGO AND ALOT OF PEOPLE WOULD BE ALIVE TODAY…..NO REASON FOR CITIZENS TO HAVE A GUN…THATS WHY COPS ARE UPTIGHT….15-20 YEAR OLDS WITH GUNS,SHOOTING ON A CROWDED BOARDWALK…IS THAT NECCESARY…HELL NO….OUTLAW GUNS…IF YOU HUNT,YOU GO TO THE POLICE STATION THERE TO PICK UP YOUR GUN AND RETURN IT SAME DAY…IF NOT RETURNED ITS A FELONY CHARGE….OUTLAW GUNS NOW BEFORE SOMEONR ELSE DIES NEEDLESSLY…GEEZ

    1. kostik says:

      Your logic has a hole in it: 1) i take a gun from a police station; 2) go kill someone, try not to leave any witness; 3) i return the gun to the police station.
      So, your scheme will make things much better, lol.

      1. OUTLAW GUNS says:

        obviously in hunting areas in the wilderness,not a metropolitan city

      2. OUTLAW GUNS says:

        cops would know where to look too…lol

      3. ham07 says:

        sure it will work, when there is a crime you interview the people who borrowed the guns from police station records.

        me thinks Kostik is not too swift, LOL

      4. orlyrad says:

        Think about this the next time somebody is breaking into your house: When SECONDS count, police are only MINUTES away!

      5. kostik says:

        OUTLAW GUNS and ham07, your replies place emphasis on aftermath crimes: “cops would know where to look too”; “sure it will work, when there is a crime you interview the people who borrowed the guns from police station records”. But the goal is to prevent crimes. A fact that one could be caught by police is known to ones who commit murders, but murders are still committed. So, your scheme could make polce work easier, which might not help reducing crimes. And, as orlyrad said, you have to take self-defense into consideration. For all you know, crime rates will go up due to citizens not able to defend themselves. Problem is in people’s heads, not guns.

      6. ham07 says:

        well you are talking about deterrent, so knowing you might be shot because every citizen has a gun is a deterrent and also knowing the police will fund you is also a deterrent. If someone commits a crime knowing the police will catch them then it is a crime of passion, and even if every citizen has a gun that will still hapen.

        I don’t see how shipping 8 million guns into NYC will solve this problem. Baghdad I imagine is like that now, and I bet their is wanton killing there everyday,

    2. David says:

      move to another country and leave my guns alone. they protect my family from idiots like this. isn’t New York suppose to have some of the strictest gun control in the country. so much for gun control. i have control of mine

  16. Rupert hewitt says:

    I am a black man. Black youths destroying each other and themselves has a lot
    to do with the Rap/Welfare mentality.

    1. Space Camp says:

      That’s it! Ship them off to SPACE CAMP. They are going to the Baikonur Cosmodrome for Astronaut training and then they are going to be booted off to the Moon. WEP assignments on the MOON, that’s what they’re asking for.

    2. DUDER says:

      EXCUSES,EXCUSES AND MORE EXCUSES,I KNOW MANY BLACK PEOPLE WHO WORK HARD,GO TO COLLEGE AND FIND WORK AND TRY VERY HARD AND MAKE IT,STOP WITH THE EXCUSES ITS GETTING OLD

  17. iggy says:

    “shooting started after some sort of dispute.” well DUH! great investigative reporting.

  18. George says:

    If their going to kill each other, let’s supply them with machine guns.
