The Wire, Real Life.

I found it weird to come across this article right as I was searching Ebay for the The Wire box set.  Also, who the hell follows the ambulance to the hospital to finish the job?

Wtf is going on Brooklyn?


July 13, 2009

A gun-toting gate-crasher killed a man after spraying a Brooklyn party with bullets, then followed a second victim to the hospital and took another shot at him, cops said yesterday.

Neighbors said the affair was a baby shower for the mother of actor Jamie Hector’s child. Hector played drug lord Marlo Stanfield on HBO’s “The Wire.”

After the carnage at the East Flatbush home on East 93rd Street just after 1 a.m., the shooter got in a car, followed one of the victims six blocks to Brookdale Hospital, then fired another round at him outside the emergency room, police said. The unidentified shooter sped away.

The 32-year-old victim was listed in critical condition at the hospital with wounds to his legs and groin.

Linton Williams, 26, who lives nearby, was taken to Kings County Hospital, where he was pronounced dead after being shot in the head and torso.

A third victim, a 22-year-old man, flagged down an EMS vehicle after being shot in the leg. He was taken to Brookdale Hospital.

Cops said a .40-caliber Glock and a .45-caliber Smith & Wesson were found at the East 93rd Street shooting scene, where neighbors said people were enjoying a baby shower. No arrests have been made.



One response to “The Wire, Real Life.
