UPDATE [10:21 p.m.]: By the time we got to Avenue Y there were no police present. We then got a call from another reader saying he saw heavy police activity at Ocean Avenue and Avenue T. He said he overheard an officer say, “He didn’t throw the gun in the bushes.” It seems like the two incidents could be related, especially if someone was making their way by car down Ocean Avenue, and then tried to get rid of a weapon before being caught by police. We’ll see what we can find out.
We just got a tip that “something major is going down” on Ocean Avenue and Avenue Y. The tipster said about eight police cars were on the scene and all he heard was “he had a gun in his hand.” We’re going to see what we can find out. Anyone with information, please send it to us.
