Oy. On Spotcrime and Twitter comes word of man shot and killed in his car at 102 Sterling. Anyone have more info? Grisly.
UPDATE FROM VINNY: Yesterday, Thursday,
February 7, 2013 at approximately 7PM a 911 call was placed for a man
bleeding in front of 102 Sterling Street. When NYPD arrived they found
one male black with a gunshot wound to his head sitting in the driver
seat of a 2004 Lexus sedan. The victim was taken to KCH in critical
condition and is not expected to recover. Anyone with information please
call the 71 Precinct Detectives at 718-735-0501.
UPDATE FROM LEWIS: Victim lived at 201 Linden, between Rogers and Nostrand. Sterling 1 is not a block associated with crime in the view of the precinct. Two experienced homicide detectives are on the case, though it may be hard to uncover the evidence needed.
Would appear this was very much an assassination, gangland style. And as we all know, it's hard to get people involved in this world to talk. Folks, we have to do something about these guys, many of whom have rap sheets longer than the dead sea scrolls. Other nabes have chased the gangs away...we can too.
The Q at Parkside
News and Nonsense from the Brooklyn neighborhood of Lefferts and environs, or more specifically a neighborhood once known as Melrose Park. Sometimes called Lefferts Gardens. Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital. Or if you're coming from the airport in taxi, maybe just Flatbush is best.
