Tonz 'o' Gunz

  1. Two cops shot in Crown Heights... The incident occurred at 2:30 AM when the two officers pulled over a black BMW SUV that had license plates belonging to another car. As the cops approached the SUV, someone inside it started shooting wildly. 23-year old Officer Russell Timoshenko was shot in the face and neck and is in extremely critical condition and 26-year old Officer Herman Yan was shot in the chest and left forearm. Yan is in stable condition and expected to live thanx to his bullet-proof vest. A security video near the scene captured the shooting; another video showed three men, believed to be the suspects, ducking into a driveway after seeing a patrol car approach. Police found the SUV abandoned near the shooting scene. Inside it were .45-caliber shell casings. The SUV had been stolen from a Long Island dealership. As you can imagine, an intense manhunt is underway for the 3 assholes.

  2. The 39-year-old owner of a Bronx moving company was found shot to death at his office. Police say Angel Ortega's wife found him yesterday at his Jiffy Moving Company on Light Street. They say he had been shot once in the leg and once in the chest. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Cops are having trouble finding witnesses because that area is primarily industrial and deserted.

  3. Manhattan... A 13-year-old girl was shot in the thigh Sunday morning while bending over on the street to tie her shoelaces. Police assume it was a stray bullet and are looking for witnesses.

  4. Two people shot to death at 8011 Avenue K in Brooklyn around 9:30 PM last night... The first victim, a 35-year-old female was shot three times, and was pronounced dead at the scene. The second, a male who's age has not been determined, was also shot three times. He was taken to Brookdale Hospital where he later was pronounced dead. Cops wanna talk to the woman's ex-boyfriend about the incident.

Maybe the proposed London-style "surveillance web" isn't such a bad idea... Instead of hoping to be able to piece together footage of ish like this from randomly placed security cameras...
