In a somber revelation, a marijuana dealer, yet to be identified, was discovered deceased in a Brooklyn apartment. The apartment, located on New Jersey Ave in East New York, had been his temporary refuge while he recovered from gunshot wounds sustained to his legs mere days prior.
Around 10 p.m. on Thursday, a customer, eager to purchase marijuana, grew concerned when there was no response from inside the apartment. According to sources, the caller promptly reached out to the police after catching a glimpse of a body through the window of the ground-level residence.
Awaiting Autopsy Results
Though the details remain hazy, initial reports suggest that the dealer had been dead for several days, likely from the earlier gunshot wounds. The police, awaiting autopsy results, suspect that a bullet may have severed an artery in his leg, leading to fatal bleeding.
The individual’s identity remains a mystery. Surprisingly, even the client who made the distressing discovery was unaware of the dealer’s real name, as per sources who spoke to the Daily News.

In the wake of this tragedy, the authorities have yet to make any arrests or identify potential suspects linked to the shooting. The police are urging the public to come forward with any relevant information. Tips can be submitted confidentially via multiple channels, including a dedicated phone line and text messaging service.
Related Incidents in NYC
This incident adds to a list of recent tragedies in New York. Last week, the Bronx witnessed a gruesome episode where a 29-year-old Hispanic man succumbed to his injuries in the hospital after being stabbed in the back, allegedly over a drug-related disagreement near his residence.
Earlier in July, the Bronx was again the backdrop for a chilling event where three individuals were charged with disposing of a woman’s body in a plastic dumpster adjacent to an MTA yard. Preliminary reports suggest the woman might have overdosed while consuming drugs with the accused.
