Death on Franklin
The block of Franklin between St. Marks and Bergen was draped in police line tonight, with a cruiser and officer posted at each end to re-route all traffic, including pedestrians. The reason, as a typically laconic NYPD officer informed me, was that a man was shot and killed on the sidewalk in front of the B & B Sports Club bar on the west side of the street. This is presumably the first homicide on the avenue this year.
