A man was shot twice in the courtyard of the NYCHA's Campos Plaza complex last night in Alphabet City. At 12:13 a.m. police received several 911 calls indicating that around six shots had been fired, and that someone who may have been the shooter was last seen running towards 12th Street. The victim, whose name has not yet been released, was shot once in each leg and was taken by car to Beth Israel.
