Shooting at Franklin and Dean

A poster on the Brooklynian Crown Heights Forum heard 7 shots at around 11 pm. An eyewitness in the deli on the corner said that it was directed at one person in front of the scaffolding on Franklin just north of Dean, and that it "would be a miracle" if the victim, who was hit twice in the back, lived. The shooter was in a car that fled the scene. The deli clerk said that from what he had heard, the victim was still alive when he was put in the ambulance, which left the scene around 11:30. The same clerk also mentioned that there had been a fight involving the victim about two weeks ago. Police were questioning people at the scene.

  1. I live across the street from where the victim was lying before the ambulance picked him up. There was gunshot wound on his thigh.

  2. I heard the gun shots and put my head out the window(after the shooting stopped) and saw the guy who was shot screaming and being dragged by a car that turned down dean from franklin. He let go, or they let go and he flopped to the ground. The car sped off and he got up and stumbled to the side of the road.

  3. I live in the building where he got shot in front of. I heard what sounded gunshots at around 11pm. About 5 minutes later, I heard sirens pull up and knew that someone one had been shot. Police then enter the building, knocked on residents’ door and questioned them about the incident. One officer asked, “A male was shot in front of the building, did you hear anything?” I hope that the person who was shot is ok…it didn’t sound good.

  4. I started the thread on Brooklynian. Sounded like the shots came from Franklin and Bergen so I was surprised when I saw the ambulence and cops out on Dean. In light of what 10:46 said, it makes sense.

  6. Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars... Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.
