Detectives in Brooklyn are investigating two separate shootings that took place Saturday afternoon.

Shots first rang out at 1140 East 92nd Street in Canarsie, where a man was shot once in the right leg just after 6:45 p.m. Paramedics transported the man — said by a Police Department spokesperson to be highly uncooperative — to One Brooklyn Health-Brookdale University Hospital Medical Center in stable condition.
