According to detectives, First Precinct officers responded to a “Shotspotter” call in the vicinity of 71 E. Greenwich Avenue. A witness near the scene gave police a description of a vehicle that was in the area around the time of the shots being fired.
After a description of a car that was in the area during the incident was broadcast, officers were able to locate a vehicle matching the description and conducted a car stop at Debevoise Ave. and Nassau Road.
