A 30-year-old construction worker was shot to death in broad daylight yesterday from a drive-by in Brooklyn (NYC).
The unidentified victim had just gotten out of a public housing building on Stanley Avenue near Ashford Street just before noon when a gunman pulled up in a silver Honda car, “shot him” and drove off, authorities said, according to New York Post.
The young man received three shots to the chest and one to the knee, the police said. She was transported to Brookdale Hospital where she was pronounced dead, reported NY1 News.
Investigators believe the victim, who was on the grounds of NYCHA’s Boulevard Houses at the time of the attack, he was the target of the shooting. But it is not clear if he knew the gunman.
The 911 caller described him as a construction electrical worker, the police said. His name was not released pending family notification.
