Five people were shot overnight in Manhattan, Bronx and Queens with citywide violence continuing unabated.
The latest shootings follow Wednesday afternoon’s gang violence in Flatbush in which a teenager was killed and another man was wounded in a broad-daylight attack.
The slain teenager was identified this morning as Malcomb Amede of Lefferts Avenue. He and a 31-year-old man were shot yesterday afternoon at Woodruff Avenue and Ocean Avenue in Flatbush – an area that has seen three homicides and at least six people shot over the past month.
A gun found on at the scene may have belonged to one of the victims in the shooting possibly to defend themselves from the assailant who escaped in a silver BMW X-5 who’s license plate appears to have been removed prior to the shooting.
