From The New York Shitty Inbox: Shots Fired On Dupont Street?
Filed under: 11222, Criminal Activity, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic
I just came home from helping a friend clean up after the storm. When I left the building I didn’t notice the bullet holes in both front doors of my building. Mike called the precinct at about 12:30 pm today to find out what the hell happened and why we weren’t told about it. Mike spoke to Detective Lopez who said someone came into our building and shot our doors. They don’t know who did it yet. We heard from neighbors that it happened at about 3-3:30 am. We’re mad as hell that the police didn’t ring bells and let tenants know. I’m all the way up on the 5th floor. And don’t always hear what’s going on downstairs. But my daughter often comes home from work in early morning hours and could have ended up as a victim. Detective Lopez said that the precinct can’t station a car out front to warn tenants. Duh! But they could have rung the bells! Lopez told Mike, “I’m sure they did”. Well I checked with other neighbors on my floor, and none of their bells were rung. Furthermore, I was up and down in bed last night because once or twice I heard loud voices downstairs. So I would have heard my bell ring.
I don’t care what the 94th precinct says. Crime is escalating in N. Greenpoint. I personally want to know if this incident ends up as an actual report. Mike’s calling 311 right now. We’ll be calling our building’s managing agent on Monday to push for cameras in this building.
Yikes! This is as good a reason as any to remind everyone this month’s 94th Precinct Community Council meeting will come to pass this upcoming Wednesday, November 7th, at 7:00 p.m.
