NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – Police in New York City say a baby girl has been grazed in the leg by a bullet and another man has been killed in separate shootings in the same Brooklyn neighborhood.
Police say they responded to a 911 call of a shooting at around 3:45 p.m. Saturday in the borough’s Flatbush neighborhood to find a 22-month-old baby girl who had been shot in the leg.
Authorities say Sarina Aarshi was shot while visiting her aunt’s house.
“I saw she was bleeding, her mom was carrying her,” witness Mohammed Shaheed Ali told CBS2’s Dave Carlin.
Police say about 10 minutes later and a mile away, responding officers found 18-year-old Donel Andrew shot in the stomach, lying on the ground.
Both victims were rushed by ambulance to Kings County Hospital.Comments
