FLATBUSH DITMAS PARK – A shooting and slashing incident in a Flatbush apartment last night left one man dead and one hospitalized.
Around 10:30 pm, police received a 911 call of an assault in progress and a man shot within the apartments at 550 Ocean Avenue, just off of Church Ave.
Arriving to the scene, officers found two victims in the lobby of the building, police said. One, a 24-year old man, had been shot multiple times in the back of the right leg, while another, a 23-year old man, had been slashed in the right arm, said police.
Responding EMS rushed the 24-year old shooting victim to Kings County Hospital, where he was pronounced deceased. The 23-year old slashing victim was taken to Maimonides Hospital, where he’s in stable condition, police said.
Sources say the incident may have been caused by an argument between the two men that turned violent.
The identities of the deceased have been withheld pending family notification. As of this morning, no arrests have been made in the incident but an investigation is underway.
