According to NYPD spokeswoman Sergeant Jessica McRorie, police were called to 1520 Watson Avenue at 2:34 p.m. on Saturday, January 19, for calls of a person shot. The gunman fired one shot into the victim in the middle of the intersection, outside of the Nunez Cousin Grocery.
McRorie stated that the victim, “Was walking in front of the location when he was struck by a bullet in the head. EMS responded and transported the male to Lincoln Hospital. There were no arrests and the investigation is ongoing.”
A second police source close to the investigation, added that the victim was being “uncooperative” with the investigation.
Witnesses at the scene reported that the “thin” male black suspect was wearing a red outfit with yellow stripes and was see fleeing on foot towards Boynton Avenue.
Minutes later officers from the narcotics unit of the 43rd Precinct reported an arrest of the gunman on Colgate Avenue, but apparently– without cooperation from the victim, no charges related to the shooting were filed.
