Detectives in Brooklyn are investigating a double shooting on Halloween afternoon that left a 25-year-old man dead and a young woman seriously wounded.
Police said the gunfire erupted at about 5:11 p.m. on Oct. 31 inside the Sheepshead Bay Houses public housing complex at 2932 Avenue V.
According to published reports, Jamel Nicholson, 25, of Brooklyn Avenue and a 19-year-old woman were standing outside the location when an unidentified shooter arrived on the scene and opened fire.
Officers from the 61st Precinct and NYPD PSA 1, in responding to a 911 call about shots fired moments later, found Nicholson shot multiple times in the chest and buttocks. The 19-year-old woman also suffered gunshot wounds to her chest, right knee and right hip.
Both victims were rushed to Brookdale University Hospital, where Nicholson was pronounced dead a short time later. The 19-year-old woman remains hospitalized there in stable condition.
So far, no arrests have been made in the ongoing investigation, police said.
