CROWN HEIGHTS - A ballistics report released yesterday says the bullets that killed Denise Gay on Park Place in Crown Heights on Monday were not fired by the initial suspect, Leroy Webster. Police say Webster and another person, Eusi Johnson, were fighting after the West Indian Day Parade when Webster pulled out a gun and started firing. Johnson and Gay, an innocent bystander, were killed, and two police officers were injured. Webster was also hurt and remains in critical condition. Witnesses say that Johnson had a weapon as well, but police say no gun was recovered at the scene. Friends and family have created a makeshift memorial on the stoop where Gay, 56, was killed . Investigators are trying to determine if the shots that killed the woman came from a police weapon or from a yet-undetermined source. Some neighbors say they believe the shots were fired from an officer's gun.
