Cops cuff man for shooting alleged gang member in Brooklyn


Cops arrested a man in connection to a shooting that claimed a man’s life in Brooklyn earlier this month.

Authorities say that at 4:53 p.m. on Oct. 1, police responded to a 911 call regarding a man shot in the lobby of 557 46th St. in Sunset Park. Upon their arrival, officers found 21-year-old Jorge Sanango, who had been shot in the chest.
