Drive-by murder

Dead on delivery

A man was killed in a drive-by shooting on Lorimer Street on Nov. 3 — the sixth murder in the confines of the 90th Precinct this year.

According to police, the victim was in his car between Ten Eyck and Maujer streets at about 2:30 pm when a gunman rolled up and shot through the window of his own car into the victim’s car.

The bullet didn’t kill the victim instantly. As the murderous driver sped away, the wounded man stumbled to a nearby delivery truck driver, who called police.

Police tried to revive the victim on the scene, but failed.

“He was bleeding from his back and the cops were pumping his chest,” said one witness.

At this point last year, there had been only four murders in the precinct, which covers the south part of Williamsburg and much of Bushwick.
