The NYPD has reached out to YWN with the following message:
“There is no reason for panic following a police-involved shooting on Avenue O in Flatbush.”
Thanks to social media, rumors of a man armed with a gun on the loose have spread panic and concern, and Police have been getting phone calls from nearby schools and synagogues with concerns.
The commanding officer of the 70 Precinct have asked YWN to reassure the community that there is no reason for panic or concern. This is an isolated incident which is under control.
