Police say a pedestrian shot a motorist in Brooklyn early Saturday morning after the driver allegedly made a U-turn that came a little too close to the pedestrian for their liking.

Cops say the incident happened just before 2 a.m. yesterday at Gates Avenue near Bedford Avenue. The 31-year-old victim, who apparently was looking for parking before the incident, was taken to Methodist Hospital in stable condition after being shot.

Sources tell the Post that two men were crossing the street at Gates when the driver made the U-turn and almost struck them. They got into a shouting match, and one of the pedestrians then pulled a gun and fired, striking the driver in his thigh and lower leg.
