69th Precinct


Gunned down

A goon opened fire on a 25-year-old man on Flatlands Avenue on Nov. 21 — killing him.

Police sources said that Dwight Langdon, an E. 79th Street resident who had been arrested a whopping 20 times, was arguing with the suspect in the Popeye’s parking lot near E. 82nd Street at 6:34 pm when a gun was flashed and a bullet was fired.

Langdon was hit in the torso. Paramedics rushed him to Brookdale Hospital, where he died.

Cops are asking anyone with information regarding Langdon’s killing to come forward. Calls can be made to the NYPD CrimeStoppers hotline at (800) 577-8477. All calls will be kept confidential.

Tazmanian devil

Cops arrested two 20-year-olds who they say ripped apart an E. 99th Street apartment on Nov. 27.

A tenant at the home near Flatlands Avenue said the suspects tore up a room in the apartment at 11:46 am, damaging a chair and a VCR in the process.

Wrong turn

A 26-year-old was arrested on drunk driving charges on Nov. 27 after he was caught weaving near Ralph Avenue, cops say.

The motorist was seen blowing through a red light as he turned onto Chase Court at 4:47 am. That’s when police pulled his 2000 BMW X5 over.

He scored a .096 on a Breathalyzer test — the equivalent of a 200-pound man consuming five drinks.
