The NY Daily News reported that a bystander, Qwong Cheng, 53, was sitting on a stoop nearby when he heard the shots, “At first I thought they were fireworks, but there were two people on the ground. One was shot in the arm and the other was on the ground. I tried to help one of them tie off his arm. They were screaming, ‘Help! Help! Help!’”

Chang said a man driving nearby pulled over and called 911.

The investigation is ongoing, cops told Bklyner, and no arrests have been made.
