Last night in Brooklyn, New York, was J'ourvet - an all-night street party which leads up to the city's annual Caribbean Day Parade. And it turned very violent. Here is what happened last night, according to the folks at the NY POST:
The first shootings happened about 4 a.m. at Flatbush Avenue and Empire Boulevard in Crown Heights, where a male in his late teens or early 20s was shot in the chest and died at a hospital, sources said.
A 72-year-old woman was shot nearby as she sat on a bench, sources said. She is expected to live.
A 66-year-old woman was shot in the hand and arm at the same location and was listed in stable condition, police said.
About 25 minutes later, a 22-year-old woman was shot in the eye just a block away, police sources said. She also died at a hospital.
A woman was also stabbed in the area, but police said she refused medical attention.
