Two Wounded In Drive-By Shooting
According to reports, a red, late-model Jaguar drove by and one of two men in the car started shooting as the victims, one 28-years old and the other 22, whose names were not released, tried to dive for cover, but they were hit anyway. Witnesses said the Jaguar then sped north on Penn-sylvania Avenue.
Witnesses said the two victims fell to the ground in front of a bodega at the corner. The witnesses called 911 and police from the 75th Pre-cinct arrived within minutes, along with fire trucks and Emergency Me-dical Service paramedics. Both victims were taken to Brookdale Hos-pital. Sources said the younger man was pronounced in stable condition, but the 28-year-old’s condition is considered critical.
A witness told the Canarsie Cou-rier exclusively that he saw parame-dics and firemen “working frantically” on one of the victims.
