Man, 20, shot dead in lobby of Brooklyn NCYHA development


A 20-year-old man was shot dead in the lobby of a Brooklyn NYCHA development early Monday, police said.

The victim was struck multiple times in the head and upper body in the lobby of a Breukelen Houses building on Williams Ave. near Stanley Ave. in East New York about 2:55 a.m.

Medics rushed him to Kings County Hospital, but he could not be saved. His name was not immediately released.

There were no immediate arrests.

The homicide came after another frightening weekend of gun violence that ended with a 1-year-old boy fatally shot at a Brooklyn park cookout.
