BEDFORD-STUYVESANT — A man was killed after he was shot multiple times shortly after midnight on Saturday, police said.
The 32-year-old man, who was not immediately identified, was found on Hancock Street near Howard Avenue by cops responding to an emergency call at 12:20 a.m.
"I heard two shots first, then a second later," then a third, said Xiuhuh Weng, owner of Weng’s Garden, which is around the corner on Howard Avenue. "I didn’t go outside after that" she added.
A deli worker said he thought the man was with a group of people that appeared drunk, and that the man was a local fixture.
The victim suffered from multiple gunshot wounds in the head and back, and was rushed to Kings County Hospital but was declared dead on arrival.
Police said they were investigating the homicide Saturday .
