Drive-By Shooting Leaves 1 Dead, 2 Injured

A drive-by shooting left one man dead and two others wounded in Crown Heights. The incident occurred at around 10:30pm Thursday night on Saint Marks Avenue near New York Avenue, about six short blocks away from Monday’s West Indian/Labor Day parade route.

Police say the shots were fired from a black car traveling eastbound on St. Marks Ave.

Akaijah Evelyn, 37, was shot in the chest and later died at Kings County Hospital.

Another two men were injured: a 31-year-old man was shot in the thigh and a 36-year-old man was shot in the foot. Both are in stable condition.

Police are investigating the incident. No arrests have yet been made.

This is their hiddur mitzvah. Start the bloodshed before the parade.

The city has a legal obligation to move this so called parade out this residential community to a safer commercial district or the city has blood on its hands !

The City is well aware. But no other neighborhood in the City (or outside the City) wants this parade either, so it’s not so easy just to move it. Maybe the tropical storm will keep the numbers down.

So, crime happens a half week before the carnival. Half a mile away from carnival. But someone this report has linked the two. Interesting.
