Wagswoofs – A man sustained multiple gunshot wounds to his head, torso, and back during a shooting incident in East New York last night. Police were alerted to shots being fired at 9:40 pm on November 25th, 2023, at the intersection of New Lots and Alabama Avenue.
Upon arrival, the officers discovered the man sprawled on the ground, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. Immediately, he was rushed to a nearby hospital in critical condition. As of now, the police are conducting an investigation into the incident, but no arrests have been made thus far.
Residents in the area are deeply disturbed by the recent outbreak of violence. “I feel a sense of fear whenever I step outside my own house,” revealed one resident. “It’s disheartening to witness such mindless acts of violence continuously affecting our community.”
The East New York neighborhood has been plagued by a series of shootings in recent months. In October, a 44-year-old man was shot in the groin near the intersection of New Lots and Schneck avenues. Additionally, a double shooting occurred on November 17th on Louisiana Avenue between Williams Avenue and Hegeman Street, which left a woman dead and a 26-year-old critically injured.
Residents are demanding a halt to the ongoing violence in their community. According to one resident, increasing the police presence is crucial. Additionally, there is a pressing need for more programs aimed at keeping young people away from the streets.
Authorities are calling on individuals who possess any knowledge regarding this incident to step forward and provide information.
