We spoke with a community member Khairul Islam Kukon at the scene who knew the the 36-year-old Bangladeshi man,
“Crime has risen, there’s a lot of crime going on, lots of robberies going on. Our local businesses, right on Liberty Avenue had been robbed every other day, we have videos.
We’re aligned with the 75, 106 and 102(NYPD Precints) We’re bordering two precincts.
So a lot of times, you know, in terms of reporting you know, it delays when we make the 911 call who wants to come first.
By the time they come, the suspect is gone or you know, they leave the scene but this community has suffered for a long long time and this crime needs to end right now.
Today a brother got shot, and we don’t know if he’s gonna live or not but it is to the highest extent, something needs to happen right now, something needs to happen, this gunshot, this gun violence needs to stop right now.” said Kukon
EMS rushed the unresponsive 36-year-old man to Jamaica Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, cops said.
There are no arrests at this time and the investigation into this shooting incident is ongoing.
