Detectives need the public’s
help in tracking down the suspects
involved in a drive-by
shooting spree in Brooklyn on
Monday night that left six people
All of the victims are expected
to survive, Chief of Detectives
Rodney Harrison said
during a press conference Monday
night in Canarsie, where all
three shootings occurred.
“The concern that we have
in all three of these incidents is
that there was a white four-door
sedan was involved” in each of
them, Harrison reported.
Police said the shooting spree
began at 6:19 pm on July 13 on the
residential block of Remsen Avenue
between Avenues M and N in
There, Harrison said, a
23-year-old woman was shot
four times in the chest. She was
brought by private means to
Brookdale University Hospital
Twelve minutes later, authorities
said, three 19-year-old
men were shot near the Bayview
Houses at 2105 Rockaway Pkwy.,
about a half-mile away.
One of the victims suffered
a gunshot wound to his below,
while another was hit in the leg.
The third victim took a bullet to
his back, Harrison reported.
EMS rushed all three victims
to Brookdale Hospital for treatment.
Then, at 6:33 pm, a 19-year-old
man was shot in the back while
riding a scooter with a woman
along Flatlands Avenue near
East 108th Street. The gunshot
victim wound up being rushed
to Brookdale Hospital for treatment;
the woman suffered minor
injuries from falling off the
scooter, the chief noted.
Based on the preliminary investigation,
Harrison said, police
believe all of the victims
“were the intended targets” of
the unknown shooter. He appealed
to residents who may
have seen the white four-door
sedan involved to contact police
to help find it.
The shootings mark the latest
episode in rampant gun violence
across Brooklyn and other parts
of the city this summer. On Sunday
night, a shooting in Bedford-
Stuyvesant left a one-year-old
infant dead and three others injured.
