Gunned down

A thug shot and killed a 23-year-old man on Linden Boulevard on April 30.

Witnesses of the attack, which happened near Bedford Avenue, called police at 11 pm. When officers arrived, the victim, who had not been named by late Tuesday, was found shot in the torso.

Paramedics rushed the young man to Kings County Hospital, where he died of his wounds.

Cops are asking anyone with information regarding this incident to come forward. Calls can be made to the NYPD CrimeStoppers hotline at (800) 577-8477.

Rockaway Parkway shooting

A gunman opened fire on three people on Rockaway Parkway in East Flatbush on April 25.

The victims — all males between 20 and 24 — were approaching Clarkson Avenue at 3:50 pm when the gunman opened fire, hitting all three.

A 24-year-old was shot in the leg, officials said. A 23-year-old was hit in the arm, while the 20-year-old suffered a gunshot wound to the buttocks.

The trio was rushed to Brookdale Hospital, where they were treated and released.

Senior sex assault

A 63-year-old man was arrested on April 23 after his former girlfriend — who is in her 70s — accused him of rape.

The woman told cops from the 67th Precinct that her former love forced her to have sex with him last August and October.

After an investigation, detectives took the 63-year-old into custody, charging him with rape.

Meat packer

A crack-addict was arrested on April 28 after he was caught trying to smuggle multiple packages of beef out of the Flatbush Food Coop on Cortelyou Road.

The 21-year-old suspect hid the beef in his clothes at the store, which is between Marlborough and Rugby roads, at 10:04 pm.

He tried to make off with the goods, but was grabbed up by an employee — dropping the stolen beef and two crack pipes in the ensuing struggle.

Jaw-breaker busted

A 20-year-old man was arrested — on his birthday, no less — for participating in a brutal Dec. 10 attack that left a man with a shattered jaw and multiple stab wounds that needed surgery.

Upwards of 10 thugs jumped the victim on Linden Boulevard near Bedford Avenue at 4:50 pm, leaving him with extensive injuries that required a two and a half week hospital stay.

Booze bilk

A 56-year-old man was arrested on May 1 after he swiped a bottle of booze from a Flatbush Avenue liquor store — then fought off a worker trying to get the bottle back.

The victim, who works in the store, which is between Beverly and Cortelyou roads, said the thief came in at 12:20 pm, grabbed a bottle and ran off.

But he didn’t get far: an employee quickly caught up with him, sparking a fight.

Lethal loan shark

A man pulled a knife on a hapless victim during a April 29 skirmish on Beverly Road — just so he could get the $10 he was owed.

The victim was between E. 18th and E. 19th streets at 2:50 pm when the thug jumped him, punching him in the face repeatedly.

The thief then pulled his knife, demanding to be repaid.

“I want my $10,” the man seethed.

Cops apprehended the would-be loan shark a short time later, charging him with assault.

Utica hold up

A thief with a gun jammed in his pocket held up a Utica Avenue store on April 19, taking $119.

A worker at the store, which is near Avenue H, said the thief entered at 6:10 pm.

After making an order, the thief thrust his hand in his pocket as if he had a gun and began ordering the employee around.

“Don’t close the register,” the man said. “Give me the money or I’ll shoot you.”

Gunned down

A gunman shot and killed a 24-year-old man on April 23 during a haunting exchange on Nostrand Avenue — and it was caught on video.

Witnesses told police that victim Trevonne Winn, who had just moved to Brooklyn from South Carolina, was walking between Farragut and Glenwood roads at 7:42 pm — talking on his cellphone — when the unidentified gunman opened fire, hitting him in the chest.

Winn died at the scene, said police, who added that the killing was caught on a resident’s surveillance camera.

Cops are asking anyone with information regarding this killing to come forward.

Calls can be made to the NYPD CrimeStoppers hotline at (800) 577-8477. All calls will be kept confidential.
