EAST FLATBUSH -

A man was shot multiple times after a drive-by shooting in Brooklyn Tuesday.

The incident happened around 1:20 a.m. on East 48th Street and Lenox Road in East Flatbush.

Two men were standing outside on the street when police say the vehicle pulled up to them and someone inside began to talk to the men before one of the occupants began firing shots.

A 26-year-old man was shot three times and suffered gunshot wounds to his arm, leg and ankles.

He was transported to Kings County Hospital where he is expected to be OK.

The other man was not hit.

Police are looking for a blue-colored Ford Fusion that was reported leaving the scene at the time of the shooting.
