Shooting at Lenox and Rogers

Two people were wounded on Lenox Road and Rogers last Saturday. part of a week-long spree of shootings in East Flatbush that saw seven people injured and one killed.

There were 47 shootings in the 67th Precinct by this time last year. After this week, the current year's total is 54.

More evidence, if any were needed, that we need to work together to make this a safe neighborhood.

Update 1: A picture of the memorial that sprang up in honor of the murdered young man is here.

Update 2: State Senator Eric Adams held two meetings related to the shooting (one on October 19, the other October 20). An LRBAA Executive Committee Member was able to attend part of one of them. We'll have a report on it at the next general meeting on November 6.
