The Q at Parkside

(for those for whom the Parkside Q is their hometrain)

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.

    A friend viewed the roped off scene in person. Hoping to learn more info. Anybody got some?

    Update: Well, Ditmas Park Corner got some. Here's from them:

    A spokesman for the FDNY says two men sustained serious injuries this past Saturday night, September 7, near the Prospect Park Parade Ground. Ambulances responded to a 9:24pm call at Argyle Road and Caton Avenue, and transported the men–one of whom was shot, and one of whom had a hand injury–to Kings County Hospital.

    The 70th Precinct adds the shooting was the result of a fight between the two men, both in their 20s, and police nearby had the suspect in custody immediately. The man shot sustained non life-threatening injuries to the stomach.

    The 70th also says a woman running from the shooting was hit by a car and sustained injuries to her knee. She was also taken to Kings County Hospital with non life-threatening injuries. It is unclear whether she was involved in the shooting.
