Drive-by Coney Island shooting claims teen's life

From the Daily News by Jonathan Lemire:

A 19-year-old Brooklyn man was gunned down early Sunday in a drive-by shooting outside a Coney Island housing project, police said.

Micuan Serrano was standing in the courtyard outside the gritty Coney Island Houses on Surf Ave. when a car suddenly sped around a corner and roared toward the teen, witnesses told police.

Someone inside the car thrust a gun out the window and opened fire, unleashing more than a dozen bullets, police said. Several slugs hit Serrano in the head and chest, killing him instantly.

The car then raced off. No arrests have been made, police said. The motive for the killing remains unknown, police said. Serrano, who lived nearby, did not have a criminal record, police said.
