Two people were shot on Coney Island Avenue, Monday evening.
The incident happened around 8:00PM at 862 Coney Island Avenue, between Ditmas Avenue and 18th Avenue.
A law enforcement source tells YWN that both victims were shot on the street by one suspect. East Midwood Vol. AMbulance and FDNY Paramedics were on the scene treating the victims. One appeared to have been shot in the leg, and the other shot in the chest. Both victims were transported to Kings County Hospital.
The NYPD requested a Level 1 Mobilization Response, to bring additional units to canvass the area in search of the perpetrator who fled on foot.
The description of the suspect was not immediately available.
Coney Island Avenue was closed as a crime scene was secured and detectives begin their investigation.
