A 96-year-old man was shot near the Kingsborough Houses in Brooklyn on Monday morning, and police have connected the suspect to a second shooting.
Police say the 96-year-old victim was shot in what appears to be his ankle while sitting in his wheelchair.
The NYPD says the incident took place at about 9:30 a.m. on Monday, and they have identified the suspect in this shooting as Sundance Oliver.
According to law enforcement officials, Oliver also shot a 21-year-old man multiple times outside of the Alfred E. Smith Houses in Manhattan, just six hours after he shot the 96-year-old in the leg.
Police believe the 96-year-old man was not the intended target and was shot after the suspect tried to rob another person. 
No arrests have been made at this time.
