Detectives from the 9th Precinct continue to investigate the late-night shooting on Avenue C at 11th Street. The $2,500 reward posters arrived yesterday.
There is very little information about the shooting in circulation. According to previous reports, a 29-year-old man was shot multiple times as he was riding a bike along Avenue C. He took himself to Bellevue Hospital, where he was initially in serious but stable condition. He was reportedly cooperating with the police. The only description of the shooter: He was wearing a black hoodie and black ski mask. It was not clear if the cyclist was the intended victim.
Anyone with information that could help in the investigation is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). You may also submit tips online.
