This just in from a reader: I just witnessed a shooting on my corner about an hour ago, Lexington and Classon. Young black man in black jacket and sock hat fired 4 rounds at another black male who was running East up Lexington (towards Bed-Stuy). Silver revolver, probably a .357 or .45. Got into a white late-model Toyota Corolla or something similar, driven by another black male in a sock hat.
I called the police and told them what I saw. There were 15 cops on the corner in under 10 minutes.
Jeez!!! At least the cops came in a timely manner. And props to this witness, who was able to provide a good description to the cops.
Another crazy crime post coming tomorrow...
