Yesterday saw multiple shootings in Brooklyn, ending in three deaths and other injuries. 15-year-old Tyquan Jamison was one of the victims, shot at 3:30 a.m. on Monday on Glenmore Avenue with a bullet cops say was intended for his friend. Jamison was a junior varsity basketball player, and his coach told the Daily News, "I always tell the kids, you have to be a student-athlete. Being out at 3:30 in the morning, you're not being an athlete."

Later that afternoon, two men were hospitalized after a police shootout at Hegeman Avenue and Osborn Street. Two officers were reportedly heading to a meeting at the 69th Precinct when they came upon two men chasing two others and shooting at each other. Police say one of the men, Shermaine Thompson, turned and fired at the officers, who then began to return fire as they chased him down an alley. Thompson got away, but police found him again when he was taken to Brookdale Hospital after returning home with a gunshot wound in his leg. The Daily News says, "It was not clear if the cops hit Thompson."

Police arrested a 19-year-old man in connection with the shootout, and a third man was treated for a gunshot wound after showing up at Brookdale Hospital with part of his finger shot off. There were two other murders in other parts of Brooklyn on Monday. Samuel Boucher was killed by a thief who stole his BlackBerry in East Flatbush, and Christopher Atkins was killed during an argument in Crown Heights. Cops believe Atkins' death was gang-related, but have yet to make an arrest for any of the three murders.

Just last month, a 9-year-old was shot in Brownsville over a stolen bike. Locals say the neighborhood could benefit from more police presence. One told NY1, "It's terrible. We need more security in the neighborhood. We do. They don't have to be here 24 hours, but we do need the presence of them more often."
