Both men were rushed to Kings County Hospital where one of the victims, a 21-year-old who had been shot in the head, died of his injuries. The second man, 18, was listed in stable condition after being treated for a gunshot wound to the neck.
A few minutes later, a 26-year-old woman wounded in the same skirmish came into the hospital, suffering from a gunshot wound to her right arm.

A driver was taken into custody after he allegedly stopped and punched another driver in the face %u2013 right in front of a NYPD police chief, officials said.
According to published reports, Aron Dombroff, 26, was driving along Ocean Parkway in Ditmas Park when he got into a cat-and-mouse game with the other driver.
The two motorists reportedly swerved around, cursed and cut off each other at 2:30 p.m. on October 28 before Dombroff thought enough was enough, police alleged.
He allegedly blocked the other car with his Volvo, jumped out of his vehicle and attacked the other driver, never knowing that the police chief was watching.
Dombroff learned this fact soon enough when cops quickly arrived at the scene and charged him with reckless endangerment and assault, police said.

Delima allegedly punched two of the men as he fought his way to the door. When that didn’t work he pulled out a canister and sprayed its contents into their faces, officials alleged.
Responding officers took Delima into custody without incident on charges of robbery in the first degree, assault and criminal possession of a weapon.
None of the employees were seriously harmed, officials said.

The victims happily turned the gun over to the police when they arrived, officials said.
One of them is a light touch. The other isn’t.

Workers told police that 28-year-old Sassoony Derameaux and 29-year-old Monifa Cox walked to the New York Avenue pharmacy together at 4 p.m. on October 31, but only Cox went inside.
