Police Blotter

A 37-year-old was shot in the back of his head — but miraculously survived — on Nov. 13 as he sat in a car on Batchelder Street, just outside the Sheepshead/Nostrand Houses.

The victim told police that he was sitting in the passenger seat of his friend’s Ford Explorer, which was parked between Avenues V and W, at 2:30 pm when he heard gunshots. One of those shots hit him, but he claimed he never saw the shooter.

Despite being shot in the back of the head, he was listed in stable condition after treatment at Coney Island Hospital.

He was a lot luckier than 25-year-old Ciera Glenn, the young woman who was shot and killed a block away from where he was hit, as she left a Halloween party on Oct. 30.

Cops have yet to make an arrest in either shooting.

Anyone with information regarding these two incidents are urged to come forward. Calls can be made to the NYPD CrimeStoppers hotline at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
