Nothing Like Some Bang Bang in Boerum Hill

November 12th, 2008 · 2 Comments

From the Boerum Hill Group comes a report of (more) gunfire in the neighborhood. Here’s how the story goes:

Well, we definitely heard 6 or 7 shots Sunday night around 8:30, I was hoping someone had more information about it. Apparently it all happened at Nevins and Warren, which is pretty much in our back yard (we’re at Wyckoff and Nevins). Yikes. Isn’t the first time we’ve heard the sound of gunfire since we moved in a few months ago…

And the answer is:

Man shot and wounded on Nevins Street (Jurisdiction of the 78 Precinct).on Sunday night.The victim is not giving out information.The event is under investigation. Strong possibility the victim knows the shooter.

Just another night in the big city.

    What the hell? That’s right by the projects, what do people expect, seriously?

    You live between wyckoff projects and gowanus projects… when I was a kid growing up in that neighborhood it was a friggen war zone daily.

    So the folks living near the projects should expect daily gunfire? I know that daily violence may have been the norm back in the day, but it doesn’t make it right.
