(JNS) A yeshiva student in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn was shot with a BB gun pellet on Monday night, October 11.

According to the New York Police Department, a call came in to 911 at around 10:40 p.m. about a man “assaulted, possibly shot.”

“Upon arrival, officers observed a 23-year-old male, dressed in traditional Jewish garb/attire, with a laceration to the head. EMS responded to the location and
transported the aided male to New York-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital, in stable condition, where he was treated and released,” said the NYPD spokeswoman.

“Further investigation revealed a black sedan (or possible small SUV) approached the corner where the victim was standing, and an unknown individual discharged a BB gun, striking the victim, grazing him in the head,” she continued. “The vehicle then drove from the location. No words were exchanged.”

She said “the NYPD Hate Crime Task Force was notified regarding the incident. There are no arrests and the investigation remains ongoing.”
