Two Brooklyn Teens Injured in Separate Daylight Shootings


Brooklyn, New York - In a shocking turn of events, two teenagers from Brooklyn were subjected to gunfire in separate incidents that took place Wednesday morning in broad daylight, as reported by law enforcement.

The initial incident transpired at approximately 9:15 a.m. on the intersection of Macon Avenue and Nostrand Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant. A perpetrator opened fire, hitting a 17-year-old victim in the back, authorities revealed.

Emergency Medical Services (EMS) promptly transported the injured teenager to Kings County Hospital, where he is listed in stable condition, according to the New York Police Department (NYPD).

Evidence from the scene included the recovery of at least one shell casing, and a discarded Doritos bag, as captured in a video taken by a photographer from The Post.

A mere hour later, a second incident occurred on East 100th Street in Canarsie, where an 18-year-old was struck in the lower back. The victim was quickly attended to by EMTs and subsequently conveyed to Kings County Hospital in stable condition, as confirmed by the NYPD.

In response to the violence, Lenox Academy, a nearby middle school, implemented a shelter-in-place protocol, sources reported.

As of Wednesday afternoon, the motives behind these shootings remain unclear, and no arrests have been made in connection with either case.
