BROOKLYN - Two police officers are out of the hospital this morning following a deadly shootout in Crown Heights near the West Indian Day parade.
Investigators say two men, Eusi Johnson and Leroy Webster, were arguing near the parade route Monday when one of them pulled a gun.
Police say one of the men was killed, along with a nearby woman who was struck by a stray bullet. The woman, 56-year-old Denise Gay, was sitting on her front stoop on Park Place when she was fatally hit, police say.
The two police officers, whose identities have not been released, also suffered minor injuries from the shooting, officials say.
The shootout was one of many across the city during a particularly violent Labor Day weekend. Authorities say at least 60 people were shot, 10 of them fatally.
