Lawrence: Shooting NEAR Brach’s Supermarket Parking-Lot

(Friday, July 6th, 2007)

9mm.jpgA gunman walked up to a car in the parking lot of Brachs Supermarket in Lawrence, opened the door & opened fire; hitting the man behind the wheel and possibly grazing his female passenger.

According to investigators the victim was shot in the left lower side of his body, and he was bleeding heavily, according to one witness. He apparently lost control of his car and crashed into another vehicle parked in the lot.

Two young boys, around the ages of two and seven, were believed to be in the back seat of the car at the time of the shooting. They were not injured and were put in responding police patrol cars.

After the shooting, the gunman ran to his car, parked in the nearby Brach’s Supermarket parking lot, and sped off, according to investigators.

The shot man was rushed to a nearby hospital in unknown condition.

    the incident did not happen in the Brach’s parking lot, it happened on rockaway turnpike which is near Brach’s! If you bring down a scource from abc7, atleast write where it really happened.

    the shooting was NOT at brachs the gunmen left his car there the shooting was in the parking lot at a video store nearby. this can confirmed by abc7.com as well as newsday.com nypostetc….

  6. what shaiches says:

    THIS DID NOT HAPPEN IN BRACH’S PARKING LOT, it happened around the corner on rockaway turnpike.
    The story itself makes no sense because it says that the guy shot someone in Brach’s parking lot and then the gunman ran to his car parked in the nearby Brach’s parking lot…, but didn’t it happen in their parking lot already?

    I researched this story and found out that the shooting happened on Rockaway Tpke., around the corner from Brach’s Supermarket. The car was parked in teh Serwood Diner’s parking lot. The gunman escaped into the Brach’s supermarket where his get away car was parked.

    yerushalayima yid
    the reason why we care is b/c if it was in brachs it was probably a jew while on rockaway tnpk it has no reason being on yeshiva world
