A person has shot on East 21 Street between Avenue K and Avenue L, Thursday afternoon.
The victim was transported by EMS to the hospital, with two gunshot wounds – one to the chest, one to the arm.
The shooting occurred outside the “Urban Dove Team Charter School” – located inside the East Midwood Jewish Center – at around 2:30PM.
Highly credible sources tell YWN that the suspects arrived from another neighborhood, and waited outside until the victim exited the school. It was the first day that this student was at this school.
The Commanding Officer of the NYPD 70 Precinct, Inspector David Wall, along with the Captain of the 70 Precinct, as well as Deputy Inspector Richi Taylor of Community Affairs all responded to the scene.
YWN reminds our readers that this school was the scene of a massive protest in November of 2019, when the community rallied to prevent the Jewish Center from leasing the property to the Charter School.
Local Yeshivas had offered to rent the building on the same terms, but the East Midwood board decided they’d rather rent to an outside Charter school.
The community feared that the school would bring violence into the quiet residential neighborhood. The school, was closed for COVID, and had just recenty opened on a small scale.
