A 17-year-old gunman was arrested on March 13 after he shot and injured two party-goers on Jackson Street.
The first victim said that he was in a room with 20 people at a party — between Kingsland and Debevoise avenues — at about 11 pm when the thug randomly pulled out a handgun from across the room and started firing at him. The victim was hit in the upper thigh.
The second man told police that he tried to grab the gun, but the jerk turned to him and fired another shot, hitting him in the abdomen.
That’s when the gunman fled, only to be arrested later. The wounded were taken to the hospital and treated for their injuries.

They rummaged through the place and found keys before they took three brand new BMWs and fled.
