Hoodie-Wearing Thieves Shoot Bar Patron, Steal Gold Chain and Cash in Brooklyn

Two suspects wearing hoodies stormed into the High Dive bar located on Fifth Avenue near Carroll Street in Park Slope, Brooklyn, in the early hours of Monday. The incident, captured on video released by the NYPD, involved the perpetrators shooting a 30-year-old patron in the leg before making off with his valuable gold chain and over $1,000 in cash.

According to the police, the suspects entered the bar shortly before 3 a.m. and approached the victim. One of the assailants then fired a shot, striking the victim in the leg. Seizing the opportunity, they snatched the victim’s gold chain, estimated to be worth $2,400, along with $1,400 in cash, before swiftly fleeing the scene.

The NYPD released surveillance footage on Monday night, revealing the two suspects entering the bar with their hoods up and later seen rummaging through items in the back. In the middle of the video, one of the individuals brandishes a firearm.

The injured victim was promptly transported to New York-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital, where he is currently in stable condition. However, he has been uncooperative with authorities, providing no further information as of Tuesday.

The suspects are described as two men with slim builds and medium complexions, believed to be between 21 and 30 years old, according to authorities. The NYPD is urging anyone with information about the crime to contact their Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or 1-888-57-PISTA (74782) for Spanish speakers. Tips can also be submitted online through the Crime Stoppers website or via the @NYPDTips Twitter account.
