Police are interviewing a “person of interest” in the deadly shooting of an 18-year-old in Brooklyn, authorities said.
The victim, whose name has not been publicly released, was shot in the chest and right leg outside of the Ingersoll Houses at 64 St Edwards St. near Downtown Brooklyn around 11:05 p.m., police said.
He was later pronounced dead at Methodist Hospital, said cops, who did not identify the 22-year-old person of interest in the case. No arrests have been made.
Around the same time, a 15-year-old boy was shot in the chest in Claremont Park in the Bronx.
As officers approached the shooting victim, they encountered two males on a scooter — one of whom was holding a gun and pointing it at the officers, police and sources said.
An officer fired his weapon once in their direction but did not hit anyone, according to police. Police recovered a gun and one person was detained.
The wounded teen was taken to a local hospital where he is expected to recover.
The Friday firearm incidents marked the first shootings in the city since late Tuesday night, the NYPD said on Saturday.
