Posted: Updated:
EAST WILLIAMSBURG -

Seniors were treated to food and children received prizes for artwork Friday as police and elected officials reached out to the community following two deaths at the Bushwick Houses NYCHA complex.

They want to assure residents that they are safe and that they should not be afraid to come forward with any information regarding the latest acts of violence.

The victims, 62-year-old Ana Devalle and 54-year-old Basil Gray, were found dead in their respective fifth-floor apartments -- Devalle last Friday and Gray on Sunday. Investigators say there may be a link between the shooting deaths. Both victims lived at the 140 Moore St. complex.

A mobile command center has been set up outside the NYCHA development following the two deaths.
