Police are looking for two men, at least one of whom who fired into a crowd of people at the Frederick Douglass Houses early Sunday morning. No one was hurt in the shooting, and their motive was unclear.
“According to the NYPD, video shows one of the two suspects whipping out a gun from his waistband and opening fire in the courtyard of the Frederick Douglass Houses on the Upper West Side around 12:05 a.m. Sunday,” the Daily News reported. The Post reported that they “fled into one of the nearby buildings.” We haven’t heard back from the local precinct with more details and descriptions of the suspects.
The Douglass Houses project is located between Amsterdam and Manhattan Avenues from 100th to 104th street.
