“I came up to him. He was slumped against the post. There was a lot of blood coming from his chest. A lot of bloody tissues around him, and quite a few police were already at the scene, but there were a lot of witnesses as well at the scene. And also, I think a group of his friends were also there, and as I was walking over, there were dispersing along the different streets around here, kind of wanting to get out of the area,” witness Olivia Empson told CBS2’s Dick Brennan.
That victim was seriously injured.
Police say another man checked himself into a local hospital and gave his address as the Wise Houses. He was shot, and they suspect he too is connected to the shooting.MORE NEWS: Overnight Gun Violence: 3 Men Shot In Queens, Innocent Woman Shot In Brooklyn, NYPD Says
