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.

71st Looking For Suspect

From Vinnie at the 71st Precinct:

Last night at approximately 9PM one male in his 20's was shot one time in his left knee. He was removed to KCH for treatment. The 71st  Precinct believes the  motive to be gang related. The 71 Detective Unit is looking for one male suspect named Kriston Hedge please see attached photo. Anyone who knows his location or has information please call the 71 Detective Unit at 718-735-0501. Suspect should be considered armed and dangerous.

This kid is apparently just 18 years old. I'd go into how sad this makes me, but I'm too tired and I've been down this road before. G'night.

Not great news.

Does anyone know what happened two nights ago on Flatbush near the gas station? Looked like peds were hit by a car.
