Police: 2 men shot in Bed-Stuy

Posted: Updated:

Police say two men were shot in Bed-Stuy early Sunday morning.

News 12 is told the men were shot along Pulaski Street near Malcolm X Boulevard around 2:40 a.m.

Police say one victim is 29 years old and the other is 51 years old.

Both were taken to the hospital and are expected to recover.

Investigators say the victims were standing in front of a building at 452 Pulaski St. when a group of men wearing sweatshirts started firing at them.

This shooting comes one day after a Crown Heights shooting left four men dead. The two shooting locations are 10 minutes away from each other.

Statistics from the NYPD show so far this year, there are already nearly two dozen more shooting victims than this time last year.

Authorities are investigating this case and are looking for the suspects.
