I have received two emails about this incident. L writes:
Hi Miss Heather —
fyi – just saw this on Gothamist news map — sending as your investigative reporting is the BEST —
Homicide | Manhattan Ave & Huron St Manhattan, NY | 1/24/2010 5:31 p.m.
(lest it seems i regularly read crime reports (!), was looking for info on why a helicopter was buzzing my neighborhood for an hour last nite – but no report)
…gothamist newsmap homicide manhattan / huron?!
what’s the story?
That’s what I want to know. The story.
When I got off the B43 at 5:00 p.m.-ish today I saw an ambulance, two police cars and a handful of lookie-loos between India and Huron Street. If there was an “incident” it happened well before I came on the scene. I suspect I speak for many fellow Greenpointers when I write that I find this very disturbing. If anyone reading this has the 411 please tender them via comments or via email at: missheather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com.
Your identity will remain anonymous.

…& while we’re on subject of crime – also on Gothamist, saw 2 reports of armed robberies at Roebling & N 9th in a week – one’s on today’s list (from last nite) — both evening, NOT middle of nite — that’s a dark & quiet corner — but seems stalled development has made things worse.
