Two Shootings on One Brooklyn Block Leave 1 Dead, 4 Injured

From by Billy Parker:
One man was killed and several injured in two separate shootings that occurred on the same block in East New York yesterday. 21-year-old Donovan Glen died after being shot in the head when some unwanted guests crashed a Friday night party on Atkins Avenue. Glen had an 18-month old daughter and was described by friends as someone who spent most of his time "at home, not on the street." 21-year-old Kendall Jones was also injured in the shooting at 2 a.m. Saturday. Ray Kelly told reporters, "It was a birthday party and going back to college party, and people tried to crash the party and that's where the trouble started." Then yesterday afternoon just down the block on Atkins, three more men were shot. All were injured with non-life threatening injuries and treated at Brookdale Hospital. A neighbor told the Daily News, "I think it was retaliation, but I don't know. It's like gunshot avenue over here."
