I’m not quite sure how it happened, but someone was able to get a gun in Brooklyn and use it to commit a crime. This is in direct contradiction to the current laws that are on the books that make it next to impossible for anyone to carry a pistol.
Sarcasm aside, this shooting happened this past Friday in Brooklyn and police are still searching for the suspect. The person who was shot wound up in the hospital, but is expected to make a full recovery.
Cops say the incident happened just after 8 p.m. on Friday in the vicinity of Moffat Street and Wilson Avenue, as the suspect approached a 24-year-old man and shot him in the left leg and lower back.
The victim was taken to Kings County Hospital in stable condition; despite shooting him at close range, he survived his injuries. A five-year-old girl on a tricycle (not seen in the video) was unharmed.
This much is known; he’s lucky to be alive after being shot at such a close range. Luckily for the general public, criminals are usually lousy shots.
