Brooklyn: St Marks Ave & New York Ave. @NYPD77Pct reporting 3 people shot at location. Level 1 mobilization called in regards.
"CROWN HEIGHTS, Brooklyn — One man is dead and two are in serious condition after a shooting in Crown Heights, police said Friday.
The three men were standing outside at 777 St. Marks Ave. around 10:30 p.m. Thursday when a black sedan pulled up beside them and someone fired shots from inside the vehicle, according to police.
Officers were stationed down the block and responded in seconds after shots rang out, the NYPD said.
All three victims were taken to a local hospital.
Akaijah Evelyn, 37, was pronounced dead upon arrival, police said.
Two were wounded and in serious condition.
Evelyn had seven prior arrests for drug-related offenses and the shooter's motive may be drug related, police said.
No arrests have been made."
Clearly, the shooters are completely unfazed by the presence of the police mobile unit and the two cops guarding the corner as if it were home to the Hope Diamond. Perhaps officers actually patrolling the block might be better?
