LOCATION: Boyland Avenue & Pitkin Avenue, Brooklyn.
Just a block from a police precinct, a 24-year-old man was shot fatally in the chest at the above intersection Monday evening, the police say. He was declared dead at the scene. Two men were arrested.
The Daily News reports that police were able to make quick arrests in the case because they saw the gunmen dump their weapons just before they entered the 73rd Precinct station house to report the shooting!
The alleged shooters, whose names have yet to be released, leaped out of a car and chased down Bishawn Turner, firing 5 rounds at him, striking him once in the head. The News reports the shooting may have been a gang retaliation for a prior shooting.
