One dead in shootout

One or more gunmen shot one man dead and injured another during a fire-fight in a building on Columbia Street on Jan. 10, police said.

Police found the two victims at separate locations in a housing complex between Bush and Mill streets around 10:10 pm, according to a report.

Paramedics transported both men — ages 27 and 33 — to New York Methodist Hospital for treatment for “numerous” gunshot wounds, cops said. Doctors pronounced the 33-year-old man dead on arrival.

Punk destroys bodega

Police arrested a teen who they say pulled a baseball bat out at a Clinton Street bodega on Jan. 8 and went on a rampage.

The trouble started when the manager told the suspect to leave his store between Mill and Centre streets just before 6:30 pm, police said. Instead of leaving, the delinquent started destroying everything around him and threatened the manager with the bat, according to the police report.

The suspect kept it up when police arrived, but they managed to get him under control and in cuffs, authorities said.

Filchers foiled

Some would-be burglars tried to force their way into a popular event venue on Union Street overnight on Jan. 8, but failed to do much more than damage some doors, police said.

The owners of the venue locked up the space near Bond Street around 10:30 pm, and returned in the morning to find both their front and rear doors damaged. Police believe the failed intruders used a crowbar on the doors.
