BROOKLYN - Police are searching for the culprit who allegedly shot a man in his apartment late Thursday night.

Police say they responded to an apartment building on 2925 West 27th St., where they found 25-year-old Shawn White on the fourth-floor stairwell with gunshot wounds to his head, chest and leg. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Community leaders are asking for an end to the violence in Coney Island, as this marks the second shooting in Coney Island in just a week.

On Tuesday, police say Yaquin English, 17, was shot and killed on Bayview Avenue.

No arrests have been made in either case. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS
