NYPD says man shot dead in NYC neighborhood where crime has been on the rise

A 39-year-old man was shot dead Wednesday night in a Brooklyn neighborhood patrolled by the 75th Precinct, which has seen a spike in gun violence this year, police said.

The victim was beaten in the arm and leg around 7:45 p.m. outside a bodega at 2520 Linden Boulevard in East New York, police officers said. He was hospitalized in stable condition.

The shooting was only the latest within the confines of the 75th century, when a spate of summer shootings evoked memories of the area’s bloody past.

“I never thought I would live in this neighborhood,” resident Karen Niles said near the scene of the shooting. “I remember when it was called ‘The Killing Field.’ This is not good.”

The daylight shooting left a trail of blood from where the victim was shot to the Cypress Hill Houses across the street.

A bullet also punctured the wheel arch of a gray Nissan Murano parked in front of the bodega.
