Bullets riddled a Brooklyn house party late on Sunday night, leaving one dead and six people injured — the bloodiest incident during an overnight period when shots flew across the borough.
Only the borough of Brooklyn reported any people shot since yesterday, with police focusing on gangs being the source of the violence.
The house party shooting happened at 11:17 p.m. on Nov. 22 during an apparent sweet sixteen celebration inside a second floor apartment on Albany Avenue, near Fulton Street, in Bedford-Stuyvesant.
Law enforcement sources said two men walked in on the celebration and began opening fire. Investigators are looking into a possible link to a gang rivalry.
Officers from the 79th Precinct, responding to a 911 call at the location, discovered six people injured at the scene — four men and two women.
Police found an 18-year-old woman shot in the leg; a 19-year-old male shot in the torso; an 18-year-old male shot in the leg; a 14-year-old female hit in the buttocks; a 16-year-old male shot in the torso; and a 15-year-old male shot in the leg.
All were transported to area hospitals in stable condition except for the 16-year-old male who was in critical condition at Kings County Hospital.
Later, a seventh victim in the shooting, a 20-year-old woman, was taken to Woodhull Hospital subsequently with a buttocks wound. She died at the hospital, police officials said.
Police have not yet given a description of the assailants, but said information was forthcoming.
“There was a lot of commotion at this party that started after 11 p.m. This building always has it fair share of problems.” said neighbor Ebony Miller.
“There were teen girls crying and screaming. Everything happened so quickly. People were covered in blood,” said Roger Bennett, also a neighbor of the building.
Brooklyn shooting spree
In the other, unrelated shootings, officers from the 73rd Precinct responded to a 40-year-old man shot several times in the stomach at 126 Sackman Ave., near Glenmore Avenue in Brownsville, Brooklyn in what is being termed as an attempted robbery at the Monadnock Construction.
Detectives say the victim refused to give up property and fought with the two men despite them having a gun. Cops were on the scene in seconds and grabbed two men in their 20s and found a firearm used in the shooting. Charges are pending, officials say.
The victim meanwhile is in stable condition at Brookdale Hospital and has not been identified. It was unclear whether the men had any connection to the business.
At 5:30 p.m. on Nov. 22, a 30-year-old man was shot in the leg in front of 947 Greene Ave. in Bushwick, Brooklyn by assailants passing in a white sedan.
The victim was taken to Woodhull Hospital where he is expected to survive.
At 9 p.m. the same night, a 17-year-old male was shot in the leg while standing in front of 939 Liberty Ave., in Brownsville, Brooklyn. Police from the 73rd Precinct say the victim has been “uncooperative” with investigators.
He was taken to Brookdale Hospital in stable condition.
At 9:45 p.m., a 17-year-old was shot in the neck in front of 315 Livonia Avenue in Brownsville. Officers from the 73rd Precinct were on scene within a minute and took two young men in their 20s into custody in connection with the shooting.
The victim was taken to Brookdale Hospital in stable condition.
Investigators did reveal whether they recovered a firearm used in the shooting, but police believe this shooting was also gang-related.
Homicide victim identified
Meanwhile, cops have identified the victim of a deadly Nov. 15 shooting near Prospect Park.
At 9:40 a.m. on Nov. 15, police found a 31-year-old man shot in the head, neck and leg in front of 188 Parkside Avenue in Flatbush, across the street from Prospect Park. The victim was rushed to Kings County Hospital, where he died on Nov 17.
He has been identified as Mamadou Diallo, 31 of McKeever Place in Flatbush, Brooklyn.
No description has been provided on the suspects as yet and police say this may be part of a spree of gang shootings that have hit that area with several people killed in that three block vicinity.
