The NYPD is investigating a drive-by shooting in Brooklyn overnight that left one man in critical, but stable condition.
The shooting happened in the Midwood section of Brooklyn on East 17th Street, near Avenue K, just before 1:45 a.m. Tuesday.
He was shot in the left shoulder, and the bullet traveled into his midsection.
He was rushed by Flatbush Hatzolah to Kings County Hospital. He was listed in critical condition, but was expected to survive.
Police were looking for a green or gray Mazda CX9 that fled the scene.
No arrests were immediately made and police did not have a motive, other than the shooting appeared to be a dispute on the street.
Local residents who gathered following the shooting identified the man as a black Orthodox Jew who is well-known in the area.
There is no reason for te community to feel unsafe, as highly credible sources tell YWN that the victim may have known his attacker, and this is nothing more than an isolated incident.
