BROOKLYN — A 43-year-old man was critically wounded after being shot sitting alone in his silver minivan in East Flatbush Monday afternoon, police said.
Calvin Terrance George was shot in the neck on the west side of Rogers Avenue between Clarkson Avenue and Lenox Road at about 4:30 p.m., according to fire and police officials.
Witnesses told police a man approached the parked minivan and fire multiple times through the rear window, striking the victim as he sat in the driver’s seat.
George, who lived on the block where he was shot, was taken to Kings County Hospital where he was listed in critical condition, according to the police department.
No arrests had been made as of Tuesday afternoon.
The suspected gunman fled south on Rogers Avenue after the shooting and was last seen wearing black pants and a tan jacket, according to police. He is described as between 5-feet-8 and 5-feet-10 and about 180 pounds.
The incident is the second daylight shooting to take place inside a vehicle in the area this month. On Nov. 18, a man was wounded when a shooter opened fire on a dollar van at Flatbush Avenue and Lincoln Road, about ten blocks from Monday’s shooting.
Anyone with information about the Rogers Avenue shooting is encouraged to call the 67th Precinct at 718 287-3211 or NYPD Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
CORRECTION: Due to an erroneous NYPD report, DNAinfo initially reported that George had died of his wounds.
