According to commenters and a friend from across my street, that ain't the story. See the comments for details. Seems Vinnie didn't know what happened, and they shoulda told him, cause it sounded intense. Not sure why he told me about the prowler though. Maybe info doesn't always get to him. Jack Lewis and I keep trading calls...maybe he has the story.
Martinos said that the shooting on on Flatbush was a 10-time arrested bad dude who got shot - looking for the shooter. Frankly, I didn't ask for anymore because it was clear it was more of the same thuggery. No one seems to be able to piece it all together, if there's anything to piece together.
Then there's the police action that's been happening on Flatbush and Rutland and around Ray's. Many people arrested...who knows how many will stay jailed, since it's notoriously hard to get narcotics offenses to stick.
There do seem to be more officers around, but it doesn't appear to be helping - yet. Next meeting with the D.A.'s to find out what progress is being made happening after the election.
The same evening, the following happened:
Last night at approximately 6PM a SUV and a car collided at the intersection of Kingston and Eastern. The impact from the collision through the SUV onto the sidewalk on Eastern Parkway center mall and pinned a female against the pole and another female under the SUV. A male was also struck on the sidewalk by the SUV. The two females were taken to KCH in serious condition and suffered very sever injuries but are expected to survive. The male was not seriously injured. Two people in the SUV were also removed to KCH in stable condition. At this time NYPD Highway investigators have done a full investigation at the scene and find no criminality. At his time it just appears to be a terrible accident.The combination made it appear that doomsday had descended.
Anyone who has additional or contrary info, please comment!
