BUSHWICK, Brooklyn — Police launched an investigation Thursday into a potentially gang-related drive-by shooting on a Brooklyn street, according to the NYPD.
It all started Thursday around 7:15 a.m. when an unknown vehicle tried to block in a 19-year-old driver’s car on Granite Street in the Bushwick section, police said.
In an attempt to escape, the teen suddenly drove onto the sidewalk, but soon crashed the car, officials said.
Surveillance video shows a second vehicle then drive by as someone inside points a firearm out the window and opens fire toward the teen’s car.
