According to police, an unidentified shooter opened fire inside of a deli at 164 Tompkins Avenue, near the corner of Hart Street, just before 7:30 a.m. this morning. Officers rushed to the scene, where they found the two injured men. Both had been shot in the torso; the 38-year-old victim had suffered multiple gunshot wounds.
Emergency workers rushed the 38-year-old to Woodhull Hospital, but were unable to save him. The 64-year-old injured man was taken to Kings County Hospital and listed in stable condition. An NYPD spokesperson confirmed that no arrests have been made in connection with the fatal shooting, and an investigation is ongoing. Neither victim has yet been identified by police. According to the Daily News, surveillance video from the scene is being reviewed by officers, and the gunman is described as a teenage male wearing a green hoodie. DNAinfo reports the shooter fled the scene west on Hart Street.
The shooting marks the second consecutive day that gunfire has broken out on Tompkins. Yesterday, a plainclothes NYPD officer from the nearby 79th Precinct shot 36-year-old Javon Shipman in the arm while he was allegedly pursuing him on a felony assault charge. Shipman was ultimately taken into custody and hospitalized in stable condition
