Nabbed for murder

Two men were arrested on June 25 following a shooting at the Sheepshead/Nostrand Houses that left one dead and one injured.

Officials said two men were standing on Avenue X, between Haring and Batchelder streets, just after 10 am when two gunmen approached and opened fire.

Five bullets were discharged, hitting 25-year-old Darry Bennett in the neck and chest. A second man, also 25, was hit in the leg.

Witnesses said that the two shooters jumped into a 1999 Ford Explorer and sped off, only to crash the SUV into three parked cars on Brigham Street between Avenues W and V.

The duo jumped out of the SUV and ran into a nearby apartment building, where they were captured after a brief search.
