Williamsburg, Brooklyn—Three men were wounded on Wednesday—one of them later succumbing to his injuries—after gunfire erupted on the street.
The shooting started at around 12:45 a.m. on Hewes Street near South 3rd Street, police said.
A 19-year-old male was shot in the head and was rushed to Woodhull Medical Center where he was pronounced dead; a second 19-year-old male was shot in the chest, and arrived at Woodhull MC by private means—he was listed in stable condition there, the NYPD said.
The third shooting victim—a 21-year-old male— was shot once in the abdomen and then walked into the 90th Precinct station house, according to police; the man was later transported to Bellevue Hospital in stable condition, police said.
