BEDFORD-STUYVESANT — A man was fatally gunned down in Brooklyn Friday night, and police were investigating the incident which occurred just blocks from where another shooting took place earlier in the day.

Police found the victim, 29, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to his arms and torso at 9:55 p.m. at a home on Jefferson Avenue near Marcus Garvey Boulevard, cops said.

The victim, who had not yet been identified Saturday, was rushed to Kings County Hospital, where he was declared dead on arrival.

An NYPD spokesman said it had not yet been determined if the shooting was connected to gunfire that erupted on Jefferson near Nostrand Avenue at 1:32 p.m. earlier in the day, and left two hospitalized.

No arrests had been made on Saturday, and the victim's family had not yet been contacted, police said.
