3 Shot in Crown Heights on Thursday Night

Three people were wounded in a Crown Heights shooting on Thursday night, and one of the bullets struck the campaign office of state Sen. Jesse Hamilton, on Crown Street.

A 16-year-old boy was shot in the back and a 31-year-old man was shot three times in the arms and back around 7:30 p.m. on Rogers Ave. and Crown St. in Crown Heights, cops said.

The 16-year-old victim was taken by ambulance to Kings County Hospital and the 31-year-old transported himself by bicycle to Lutheran Medical Center. Both are in stable condition, officials said.

One bullet also struck the door frame of Sen. Hamilton’s office. None of the staffers inside were injured, cops said.

Two guns were recovered at the scene, police said.

Standing outside his office, Hamilton showed how bullets struck just inches away from its front door.

No arrests have been made and police are investigating.

    So, maybe instead of Hamilton grandstanding about how he’s opposing Trump, maybe he can actually get something useful done for his constituents? Like work on increasing job opportunities (which then tends to reduce crime), as indeed the president’s policies are doing?

    I wonder if Sen. Hamilton is having second thoughts about his recent legislation which helped raise the age of criminal responsibility in NY so that 16 and 17 yr olds don’t get arrested but instead go to family court for milk and cookies.

    I thought that guns we’re illigal in New York? How then could this happen? I thought that the government is going to protect everyone and keep everyone safe. I am very confused.

    Maybe this will convince Democrats and NY in general how well the current gun laws work so there is no need to push for newer ones that won’t be enforced.
    Interestingly Israel is looking to ease licensing process for gun ownership and carrying to PROTECT its citizens. American will probably ignore any improved statistics and look to Australia and England where they can twist it to appear crime went down with their Communist laws.

    you can be sure that if this was Jews attacking blacks, they would be protesting violently in the streets. Here we are just taking care of our attacked community member.
    very mixed message here. Either these people are evil and crooked, or they were not trained to understand. Either way, its horrible.
