Another murder rattles Canarsie

Killed outside home

A 24-year-old man was shot and killed outside of his Avenue K apartment building on Sept. 3.

Charles Wynn was found with a gunshot wound to his head in front of the building, which is between E. 102nd and E. 103rd streets, when cops arrived at 10:04 pm. He died a short time later at Brookdale Hospital.

Witnesses heard Wynn, a resident of the apartment building, arguing with another man before the shots were fired.

Cops are asking anyone with information regarding this slaying to come forward.

Calls can be made to CrimeStoppers at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.

More violence

Another man was shot on Sept. 3 near the corner of Remsen and Foster avenues a few hours earlier.

Police said the unidentified victim was shot around 7:30 pm with non life-threatening injuries.

The gunman had not been found by late Tuesday.

Generation gat

An E. 86th Street resident was arrested Sept. 3 after allegedly firing a gun at his son.

Cops said the 41-year-old starting shooting at his son from a .22 caliber handgun during an argument inside their home, which is between Avenues L and M, at 10 pm.

Police searched the home, but didn’t find any bullet holes. They did, however, find the gun, as well as a bag full of ammunition and a bullet-proof vest.

Blockhead

A man was arrested on Sept. 5 after he threatened to hit another man — with a block of concrete.

Police broke up the 9:30 pm spat at E. 89th Street between Flatlands Avenue and Avenue J before the 38-year-old could brain the man with whom he was arguing with the concrete.

Dastardly dare

A 20-year-old had sex with a 14-year-old girl at a Utica Avenue party during a terribly salacious twist on the “Truth or Dare” game, police learned this week.

The girl said she was victimized when she partied with a group of friends at a home between Avenues N and O on July 17 at 1 pm.

During the game, she was dared to have sex with the older man. She freely admitted that she agreed to the dare, although now she’s crying statutory rape and filing charges against the 20-year-old.

Who shot the DJ?

A gunman opened fire on a DJ on Sept. 5 as the music mixer loaded his equipment into his car, which was parked on E. 45th Street, after a gig.

The victim had just finished his gig, which was between Avenues L and M, at around 6 am when the trigger-happy pistoleer approached and hit him once in the chest before running off.

The 31-year-old was rushed to a local hospital, where he was listed in stable condition.

Three on one

A trio of terrors jumped another man on Ralph Avenue on Sept. 2, but fled empty handed.

The victim said the suspects pulled a gun on him and tried to rob him at 5:18 am while he was between Flatlands Avenue and Avenue J.

But the thieves got cold feet and ran off without taking anything from the man.

Rooftop renegades

Thieves cut a hole through the roof of a Fine Fare supermarket on Utica Avenue on Aug. 27, but apparently didn’t have enough time to get inside.

Workers showed up at the market, which is between Avenues K and L, and found the hole, but nothing appeared to have been stolen.

The attempted break-in took place sometime after 6 pm, officials said.

Window woes

A thief forced his way into a Flatlands home on Aug. 22, taking several credit cards and some jewelry.

Police were told that the burglar forced open a rear window to the E. 55th Street home, which is between Avenue I and Flatlands Avenue.

Knocked down

A thief barreled into a 37-year-old man on Aug. 22 and robbed him of his cellphone during a Flatlands clash.

The victim was thrown down the stairs after he had just stepped inside the Farragut Road building, which is between E. 59th Street and Ralph Avenue.

The thief scooped up his victim’s cellphone, taking it with him, police said.

Help wipe out graffiti

As the ongoing war against graffiti vandalism continues, cops are offering a $500 reward to anyone with information that can help them arrest neighborhood vandals.

The hefty reward is part of the city’s ongoing push to rid New York of graffiti, the leading quality of life complaint brought to police.

Anyone with information about graffiti vandalism in their neighborhood is urged to contact either 311 or 911.
