Woman Killed, Another Hurt in Brooklyn Shooting

EAST FLATBUSH — A woman was killed and another hurt after being shot in the basement of an East Flatbush home Tuesday morning, police said.

The women — ages 63 and 37 — were shot inside 359 E. 25th St., near Clarendon Road, just before 10 a.m., fire officials said.

The older woman was struck in the chest while the other victim was grazed in the head, police said.

"She was talking, she was crying," said neighbor Roslyn Hunter, 64, of the 37-year-old victim. "It's horrible."

Both victims were rushed to Kings County Hospital, where the 63-year-old victim died. The other victim was stable, police said.

Detectives and emergency service unit cops swarmed the home to investigate the shooting, which sources said was preceded by an argument.

A man, 70, has been arrested, police said. A firearm was also seized.

"He looked normal to me, a nice old man," said Lloyd, a neighbor who asked that his last name not be used.
