At a crossroads, a man on foot was arguing with another individual on the opposite sidewalk, when he pulled out a gun and fired repeatedly, according to Keechant Sewell, who blasted the behavior as ‘brazen criminals’ . The first teenager was hit in the chest and the other two in the leg and buttocks. The three young people were transported to the hospital, but the most seriously injured, who should have had “a bright future”, died, denounced the head of the NYPD. The other two are hospitalized in stable condition.
Increase in crime
There have been no arrests but police have CCTV footage and have promised that those responsible will be brought to justice. This is the second time in a week in New York that young people have been victims of stray bullets fired in the middle of the street by armed individuals: on March 31, a 12-year-old boy was killed in Brooklyn while he was eating in a stationary car with an injured 20-year-old woman and an unharmed eight-year-old girl.
