Sushi delivery man caught in shootout, shot in Brooklyn

From the Daily News by Zachary Goelman and Simone Weichselbaum:

A sushi delivery man was critically injured Thursday night in Brooklyn when he got caught in a shootout between a group of drug dealers, police and witnesses said.

Lin Jun, 21, was standing in front of Sushi Tatsu on Franklin Ave. in Crown Heights, when four shots rang out about 7:30 p.m., police and a witness said.

Jun, who was hit in the stomach by at least one bullet, staggered into the restaurant and collapsed in a pool of blood.

He was taken to Kings County Hospital where he was listed in critical condition, cops said.

A second man, a 28-year-old, who police said was the "intended target" of the shooting, was hit in the shoulder.

He was also taken to Kings County Hospital and was listed in stable condition.

"It took the ambulance 15 minutes to get here, I can't believe it," said Sushi Tatsu manager Helen Wong, 40.

Wong said Jun lives alone in Bay Ridge. Cops were still looking for the armed hoodlums.
