Breukelen Man Survives Shooting

By Dara Mormile

A Hispanic male was shot Sunday morning near the Breukelen Houses and police from the 69th Precinct are still looking for any information that might help lead to an arrest.

According to police reports, the 29- year-old was sitting on a bench near 906 Williams Avenue at about 12 a.m. when he was approached by a man he claimed he didn’t know. The suspect then allegedly pulled out a gun and shot the man in his right leg and fled on foot in an unknown direction.

The victim made his way to his East 108th Street apartment in the complex before he called police, who canvassed the area. Emergency Medical Service paramedics then took him to Brookdale Hospital for treatment of his injuries. A description of the suspect was not given.
