A man is in the hospital after he was shot in the stomach following a dispute in Brooklyn Monday night.
- First, tonight at 11:00, a developing story in Brooklyn. Right now, crime scenes at two subway stations, and serious questions about what happened in between.
- Eyewitness's reporter Lucy Yang is live at Bed Stuy to help fill in the blanks. Lucy?
LUCY YANG: That's right. We're at Woodhull Hospital, where detectives want to speak to a gunshot victim to find out what happened and why, and how his journey to get help may or may not have included the subway.
We're told it begin here on Lafayette Avenue near Malcolm X Boulevard in Bed Stuy. Police report a 31-year-old man was shot in the stomach around 6:30 tonight. Officials right now believe he was somehow able to walk 15 minutes in the subfreezing temperatures, where he then collapsed near the Flushing Avenue subway station.
However, folks at both scenes believe he actually jumped on the J-train after he was shot, rode it to the Flushing Avenue train station, where he collapsed. And then help came. We understand he was then taken to the hospital.
Of course, we are waiting to learn more about his condition, the motive for the shooting, and his moments right after the attack. Again, a 31-year-old man is now being treated here at Woodhull Hospital after being shot in the stomach.
