Last weekend you may have heard some shots coming from Beekman, early morning Sunday to be exact. Seven, by some accounts. In a gangland scenario, two gentlemen were sitting in a car when they were ambushed and shot, clearly with homicidal intent. They were struck but not killed. Perhaps unsurprisingly, given the circumstances, neither victims are cooperating with police. Source, the 71st.
Also, the same evening, tragedy struck two brothers who have long worked at Lincoln Park Tavern. They were attacked over the weekend and stabbed. One of them didn't survive. The crime took place over by the Marcy Houses in Bed-Stuy. Feel free to inquire after the family's well-being and make a donation towards funeral arrangements through managers at the restaurant.

Updated: This afternoon shots rang out on Parkside, near the McDonalds. Luckily no one hit or hurt. Still seeking suspect. Source, multiple.
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.
