CROWN HEIGHTS — Three men and a woman were busted Thursday night after officers saw them toss a bag of loaded guns out their apartment window on St. Marks Avenue, police said.
Jameque Moore, 26, Naquanda Campbell, 25, Quintin Fitts, 24, and Anthony Stukes, 28, were caught inside Moore's apartment at Saint Marks Ave. between Franklin and Bedford avenues after a witness who called 911 to report a 7:10 p.m. shooting said she saw the shooter flee into the building, police said.
Two officers investigating the shooting were standing on the back deck of a residence about four doors away from 575 Saint Marks Ave. when they saw a backpack being tossed out of a window, police said.
Police opened the bag and found two loaded semiautomatic handguns and a revolver inside, police said.
Emergency Service Units and the Hostage Negotiation team went into the building and started a conversation with the suspect inside Moore's apartment, police said.
The four suspects then exited the location and were taken into custody, police said.
They were expected to be charged with weapons possession, police said. A spokesman for the Brooklyn District Attorney's Office said they had not yet been arraigned by Friday evening. It was unclear if they were being investigated in connection to the shooting.
