Jewish Man Shot With BB Gun in Midwood

By Matis Glenn


An Orthodox young man was shot with a BB gun in Midwood Monday night, according to Flatbush Shomrim. The victim was walking in the parking lot behind Amazing Savings and 7/11 on East 17th Street between Avenues L and M at around 9:30pm, when a dark minivan drove up near him.

The victim, in his 20’s, was hit in the neck; the BB left a mark, but b’chasdei Hashem did not cause serious injury.

The victim was wearing a black hat and jacket. NYPD Hate Crimes division and Flatbush Shomrim are investigating.

BB gun shots can be extremely dangerous depending on proximity and the area struck.

The shooting comes only a day after a father and son were shot at by a BB gun in front of a Staten Island kosher supermarket. An arrest in that case was made Tuesday.
