A 24-year-old man was shot in the leg Thursday morning during what police say was an apparent dispute in a Brooklyn home, police officials said.
The victim, not immediately identified, was found by police from the 77th Precinct at 11:20 a.m. inside of a home on Park Place near Schenectady Avenue with a serious leg wound, police said. He was rushed to Kings County Hospital in stable condition.
Police sealed off the three-story house and officers fanned out into the neighborhood in search of two teenage suspects. Law enforcement sources said the victim knew his attackers.
A neighbor who didn’t want to be identified said he was sleeping at the time the shots rang out, but said there have been disputes at the house in the past.
“I have heard things going on in there before and I’m not that surprised,” he said.

In a separate, unrelated incident, a man was stabbed in the head and face at a Bushwick bodega just after 12:30 p.m. on Thursday afternoon.
The violence occurred at the intersection of Broadway and Greene Avenue.
Cops said the victim was transported to a local hospital, but was expected to survive. The stabbing apparently was related to a violent dispute inside the store, police said.
