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.

Shot on Woodruff

Feel like Caledonia's been pretty quiet lately. Bad news last night...

Police sources said the shooter ran up to the man and fired — hitting the victim in the head and neck — and ran.
“There was three shots. He was lying there bleeding from the head,” said one witness, who wouldn’t give his name. “His backpack and baseball cap were on the ground. Everybody was running and screaming.”
Police shut down Woodruff as they investigated the scene and searched for the shooter, who may have fled east on the street.
“He was laying there on his side. He was shot in the head and the throat. He looked pretty bad,” said a terrified woman who lives across the street.
