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.

UPDATE: Shooting at Church Ave Subway Station

Yes, the shooter was wearing a red jumpsuit. The victim is expected to survive. And did I mention the red jumpsuit? It just goes to prove what I've said here many times...there is a strong correlation between violent crime and poor judgment.

This just in, via Ditmas Park Corner, a shooting at the Church Ave side of the Church Ave Q/B.

For those closely following the slowdown in shootings in the 71st, it's worth noting that there's been an upsurge just south and west in the 70th. Winter hasn't slowed the pace, unfortunately, of nearby violence.

It happened inside the station.

The gunman was last seen fleeing on East 18.

Right now we have police helicopters going over the area.

We have our suspect.

But on a serious note, I heard through the grapevine that they have the suspect in custody. Can anyone confirm this?
