Four Teenagers Are Shot in Brooklyn

Source: NYT

Four teenagers were wounded on Monday in a shooting at a playground in Brooklyn, the police said, the latest in a spate of gun violence involving young people.

It was unclear what prompted the shooting, which occurred on Fulton Street near Thomas S. Boyland Street about 6:30 p.m. The police said a 16-year-old boy was shot in the left arm. In addition, a 13-year-old girl, a 16-year-old boy and an 18-year-old man were grazed by bullets. All were expected to recover.

The police said the shooter fled on a bicycle and had not been apprehended as of late Monday evening.

There have been several similar shootings in recent weeks. Last month, six people, including two children, were shot on a single night in Brownsville; all survived. Also last month, a 4-year-old boy was killed in a shooting at a basketball tournament in the Bronx held in honor of a woman who was stabbed to death in 2010.
