Cops are on the lookout for a man they believe may have information about a Boerum Hill shooting earlier this month that put three men in hospital, according to a report.

Police are hoping to speak with a 24-year-old man about an incident of gunplay at a basketball court on Baltic Street between Hoyt and Bond streets at 5:51 pm on June 10, which left a 25-year-old with a gunshot wound to his leg, a 19-year-old with a bullet to his torso, and a 28-year-old shot in the ankle, a report said.

The three victims made it to local hospitals in stable condition and are all expected to live, officials said.

Cops described the man they’re looking for as 5-foot-5 and 185 pounds.

Law enforcement officials ask people with information about the incident or with knowledge of the man’s whereabouts to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477. The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at or by texting tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577.

Reasonable discourse

Andrew J arrindell from New jersey says:
you can question them all you want even the ones who got shot no one is going to say a damn think, they believe we see don't tell, they have their own street justice in that projects,
whom ever shot those three guys you batter believe they are going to shoot back, and the police ain't going to do a damn thing, you take your life at risk in that development, the bond street area should be closed from respectable people going into that hell hole, you lose your life the police thinks twice then walk away, i haven heard a case ever getting solved in that 67 prec, unless they have out side help from the feds

Ed from Boerum Hill says:
Andrew I live a block from this court. I grew up here- you are wrong. Maybe in the 80's-90's. Things have changed here
