Detectives are still looking for the suspect behind an East Flatbush mass shooting on Saturday afternoon that left one man dead and three others injured.
According to police the perp opened fire at 491 E. 45 Street at around 1:45 p.m., just a half a block away from Holy Cross Cemetery in broad daylight.
First responders arrived on the scene and found 39-year-old Emmanuel Soray, of Arlington Avenue in East New York, unconscious and unresponsive with a gunshot wound to his face.
Officers also found an unconscious and unresponsive 27-year-old woman with a bullet wound to her torso, and a 40-year-old man who sustained a gunshot wound to his leg, but was conscious and alert at the scene.
All three victims were rushed by EMS to Kings County Hospital. Soray died there a short time later; the 27-year-old woman remains in critical condition, while the 40-year-old man was listed in stable condition.
Police later learned that a fourth victim, a 33-year-old woman shot in the arm and buttocks, sought treatment via private means at a hospital in Elizabeth, NJ. She’s listed in stable condition.
Paramedics rushed all three victims to local hospitals, where the female and one of the males are in critical condition. The man who sustained a gunshot to his foot is in stable condition, according to police.
Police have not yet determined a motive in the case. No arrests have been made in this case, and the investigation remains ongoing.
Citywide, between Jan. 1 and March 5, when the most recent NYPD data is available, there had been 179 victims of gun violence in the Five Boroughs — down from 208 over the same timeframe last year.
Six of those victims this year had been shot in the 67th Precinct, where Saturday’s bloody incident occurred.
