The shooter was a young guy who ran out of a bodega, shot a young man in the leg three times then ran north on Washington. The victim got up after a few minutes to go inside and presumably call the police. There was a crowd of about 15 people assembled and watching... Terrible way to start the day." The shooting was at St. Johns Place and Washington Avenue (see Gothamist Newsmap for location).
