Detectives are looking for the suspect behind a Brooklyn shooting on Sunday night that left a 36-year-old woman and her dog dead.
Police said the woman was executed at a smoke shop at 488 DeKalb Ave., near Franklin Avenue, in Clinton Hill at about 9:45 p.m. on Jan. 2.
Officers from the 79th Precinct, in responding to a 911 call, found the woman unconscious and unresponsive, with a bullet wound to her torso.
EMS rushed her to nearby Brooklyn Hospital Center, where she was pronounced dead. Police have withheld her identity, pending family notification.
WABC-TV reported that the victim and her dog were both shot by the unidentified gunman in what’s believed to be a targeted shooting.
As of Monday morning, police provided little information about the incident, including a possible motive for the shooting. Sources offered a vague description of the shooter, who’s believed to be a man in a gray hooded sweatshirt and gray pants.
So far, no arrests have been made in the ongoing investigation, police said.
