Shocking Video Shows Labor Day Shooting

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police have released new video of a wild shooting in Brooklyn that left two people dead, including an innocent bystander Monday night.

Police say Leroy Webster shot and killed 29-year-old Eusi “Randy” Johnson Monday night just after 9 p.m. in Crown Heights.

The shooting was captured on surveillance video at the scene. In the video, police say you can see Johnson and several others running away after Webster shot Johnson in the neck.

In the video, police say Webster chases Johnson as he takes off down the street, firing again in his direction.

But that’s when police say officers arrived and Webster runs back to the building’s front door.

New York Police Department spokesman Paul Browne said officers ordered Webster to drop his gun, but said Webster instead shoots at the cops.

Officials said in the video, you then see Webster get hit, shot by officers. He falls on the stoop but is seen firing again at police.

Two officers were wounded in the shooting. Police said bullet fragments hit Officer Omar Medina, 36, in the arm and chest and Officer Avichaim Dicken was grazed by a bullet.

Johnson later died from his injuries. Webster was taken to the hospital and was last listed in critical condition.

Witnesses and police said the shooting stemmed from a fight between Webster and Johnson.

Witnesses also told police Johnson was seen firing a gun, according to officials. But so far, nothing has been found by investigators.

Caught in the crossfire was 56-year-old Denise Gay. The innocent bystander was shot to death while sitting next to her daughter outside their home.

Witnesses said Webster lived two doors down from Gay.

On Wednesday, police ballistics tests determined that Gay wasn’t killed by a bullet fired by Webster’s gun.

Browne said a .380 caliber bullet was found in the vestibule of where Gay was shot, but it hasn’t been linked to any gun.

Webster has been charged with murder and attempted murder.

Mayor Bloomberg said the recent spate of shootings shows that the federal government doesn’t take the problem of illegal guns seriously enough. What do you think?

    what about the wild west crackers who killed each other or all the violence in Ireland you dumb ignorant hillbilly…all people kill each other somebody needs to whip you to keep you in check…

  • JohnK

    Jefferson Davis you are an idiot you are no better than the animals that murdered an innocent woman.

  • JohnK

    What do I think?I think Bloomberg is an idiot. This isn’t about illegal guns it is about humans that commit heinous acts and a justice system that coddles offenders. So the answer is let’s make laws that only law abiding citizens will follow and there will still end up being a gun problem, long after people like Bloomberg thinks of more stupid stuff to say. The other problem is we continually elect dopes like Bloomberg NYC your Mayor is a joke. And so is your clinging to this idea that NYC is full of tough guys. How about less tough guy stuff and more acting like civilized people vice wild animals. Innocent woman murdered on her doorstep yep real tough.

    Good P.R. move to release the video without unnecessary delay after the review.
    It clearly displays the instigator and antagonist of the entire situation.

    Thank you Hollywood and certain “music” for falsely portraying that violence solves problems and makes you the man.
