BROOKLYN - Nearly 50 people were wounded or killed in shootings that happened before and during the West Indian Day Parade in Crown Heights this weekend, including a 56-year-old woman.
Police say Denise Gay was killed after getting caught in the crossfire of Eusi Johnson and Leroy Webster on Park Place.
Gay's relatives say she stayed away from the parade, fearing violence, and assumed that she would be safe on her front stoop.
The shootout also sent one police officer to the hospital and left another grazed by a bullet. Police say both suspects in the shooting were killed.
Residents question if it's time to end West Indian parade
