Brooklyn shooting leaves man in critical condition

Brooklyn detectives are investigating a shooting that left a 52-year-old man in critical condition Thursday night. 

According to law enforcement sources, the incident occurred in front of 323 Lincoln Place in Prospect Heights, just a few blocks from the Brooklyn Museum, on June 20 at approximately 10:05 p.m. 

After a series of gunshots were fired, officers from 77th Precinct rushed to the scene where they discovered the victim with multiple gunshot wounds throughout his body, including his head, police sources said.

EMS was on site and rushed the man to Methodist Hospital, where he remains in critical condition.

Preliminary reports say a firearm was recovered inside a vehicle at the scene, though police could not confirm a motive just yet. 

Meanwhile, the male suspects were seen fleeing eastbound on Lincoln Place before cops arrived. Witnesses observed detectives canvassing a ride sharing car for clues throughout the night. 

So far, no arrests have been made, but the investigation remains ongoing.
