Bullet Hole Found in Flatbush Shul

BROOKLYN -

An apparently stray bullet hit a shul in Flatbush on Shabbos, according to Shomrim and the NYPD.

A bullet hole was found in a side window, and a bullet fragment on the floor, of Khal Zichron Mordechai (Rabbi Sherer’s Shul), on Nostrand Avenue between Avenues L and M. Based on surveillance footage from inside the shul, the shot was fired early Shabbos afternoon, when the shul was empty. The bullet was found when the shul opened later for tefillos.

The incident is under investigation, but law enforcement believe it was a stray bullet rather than a targeted shooting.
