A gunman shot a guy in broad daylight on a Park Slope street this morning, police said.

The goon blasted the 40-year-old victim in the leg on Sixth Avenue between Saint Johns and Sterling places around 8:30 am after an argument, according to cops. The victim was rushed to Kings County Hospital and is in stable condition.

The gunfire shattered the quiet of the brownstone-lined block.

“Everyone just started to run,” said blues singer Sari Schorr.

The victim refused to cooperate after the shooting, cops said.

Hey Roxie,
In Brooklyn we call the cops cops, because that's what they are. You call call them whatever you like in Kansas.

Yeah Jon, nobody got shot under Bloomberg. Just a lot of people went to jail for petty offenses like walking home on the wrong "cop's" beat.
