8 Shot Over Three Hour Period in Bronx and Brooklyn


Spread out over two boroughs, Brooklyn and the Bronx, eight men were wounded by gunfire in the same three hour period, leaving four in the hospital, police sources told NY City Injury Attorneys. There were four shootings in total.

First there was an incident that happened at 4:20 p.m. on Utica Avenue, in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Police discovered that two men, aged 34 and 32, were taken to Kings County Hospital after being shot by an unknown assailant. They were said to be in stable condition. Two other men were shot in that first incident. They were capable of transporting themselves to Brookdale University Hospital. Like the men before them, they were considered to be in stable condition.

The second shooting occurred in the Bronx, about 45 minutes later, on Eastchester Road in the Bronx. He was taken to Jacobi Medical Center to be treated and listed in stable condition. Two suspects were seen fleeing the scene in that shooting.

The third incident occurred on Rockaway Avenue, in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. Yet another man was shot, in the leg, at about 6 p.m., less than an hour after the second shooting. As with some of the first victims, he ended up in Brookdale University Hospital, where he was considered to be in stable condition The final shootings happened a dozen blocks away on Throop Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant about 45 minutes later. A 17-year-old was shot in the back, while another sustained gunshot wounds of an unspecified nature. They were transported to Kings County Hospital, where their wounds were not deemed to threaten their lives.

Police still have not arrested anyone for any of these shootings. They have no further information on all the gunfire that happened that day, nor do they know if any of them were linked together in any way. Whatever the real circumstances and motivations might be, NY City Injury Attorneys will remain on the case until everything is cleared up.
