Yet another argument in Brooklyn ended in bloodshed Thursday when a twenty-something man was gunned down following a street feud, police reported.

Detectives continue to search for the shooter responsible for the murder, which occurred just before 10:55 a.m. on Oct. 14 in front of a bakery at 1096 Rutland Road in Brownsville.

Law enforcement sources said the male victim had been engaged in a dispute with the suspect moments before he took the fatal bullet to the chest.

The victim was brought by private means to Brookdale University Hospital, where he died a short time later. Police have withheld the victim’s identity, pending family notification.

Officers from the 67th Precinct responded to the incident. During a preliminary investigation, they obtained a description of a suspect, described only as man in a gray hooded sweatshirt.

So far, no arrests have been made in the ongoing probe.
