In its report on yesterday’s shooting at 101 Clark Street, the Brooklyn Eagle claims to have confirmed the identity of the victim. The paper says it will not disclose that information until law enforcement officials release it:
Brooklyn Eagle: The Brooklyn Eagle confirmed the identity of the victim, but will not publish those details until made public by the police. The victim was a graduate of Fort Hamilton High School in Bay Ridge and is currently engaged to be married, according to his Facebook page.
The victim also reportedly knows who the shooter was.
Police confirmed the victim had about a dozen prior arrests and lived at 101 Clark St., which is a high-rise building with several hundred Mitchell Lama co-op apartments. The victim, a 28-year-old white male with what appears to be Chinese letters tattooed on his left forearm, was wearing white sneakers, baggy white shorts and a red shirt when he was shot.
