Fatal shooting in Brooklyn is NYC’s first homicide of 2019

A man was shot and killed in a Brooklyn housing development early Tuesday — marking the city’s first slaying of 2019, cops said.

The 29-year-old victim was discovered at around 4:30 a.m. with multiple gunshot wounds to his torso in the fifth-floor hallway of a Stanley Avenue building within East New York’s Louis H. Pink Houses, police said.

He was rushed to Brookdale Hospital Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

It wasn’t immediately clear what provoked the shooting, and no arrests had been made Tuesday morning.

The victim’s name is being withheld pending family notification.
