EAST FLATBUSH - Police are investigating a deadly shooting that happened around 5:30 p.m. Thursday on Brooklyn Avenue near the intersection of Clarendon Road.

Police say the victim was in the passenger seat of his friend's car when another car pulled up behind them.  A person got out of the other car, approached the window and opened fire.
