Broad-daylight shooting in Brooklyn injures two men

A shooting in broad daylight rocked Ditmas Park, Brooklyn, on Friday, leaving two men injured, according to law enforcement sources. The incident occurred around 9:45 a.m. in front of 12 Newkirk Plaza, stunning the normally peaceful neighborhood.

The victims, a 64-year-old man and a 25-year-old man, were injured in the face and leg. A surveillance video of the incident paints a grim picture of the moment of the attack. The footage reveals two men, one in white attire with a red hat, presumed to be the older man, and another individual, sitting on a bench when suddenly they fell to the pavement.

Within a split second, a third figure, believed to be the younger victim, can be seen collapsing in the upper right-hand corner of the frame. What follows is a flurry of activity, with a group of onlookers gathering around the older victim lying on the ground.

Emergency services promptly transported both men to a nearby hospital, where they are reportedly in stable condition. The elderly man was later photographed with a bandage on his face, accompanied by a detective and an emergency medical technician.

At this stage, the motive behind this shocking act of violence remains uncertain. Police are determining whether the victims were specifically targeted or unfortunate bystanders caught in the crossfire.

Despite ongoing investigations, no arrests have been made in connection to the shooting.
