From the NY Times: By FERNANDA SANTOS Published: July 31, 2006 A man died and a woman was injured about 1 a.m. yesterday when a gunman fired several shots at a group of people on the corner of Gates Avenue and Downing Street in Clinton Hill, the police said. At least two of the shots hit the man, Teddy McNichols, in the chest, while the woman, who was not identified, was hit once in the left foot, the police said. Mr. McNichols, 21, died on arrival at Bellevue Hospital Center in Manhattan. The woman told the police that she did not see the gunman.
Yikes. This is one of those shady little pockets of the neighborhood that one needs to exercise caution in.
