Authorities say a suspect is wanted for shooting two men Tuesday night in Bed-Stuy.
According to the NYPD, the shooting took place on Dekalb Avenue near the Lafayette playground at around 8:30 p.m. A 37-year-old man was rushed to the hospital after being shot in the back and the stomach. Officers say the second victim, a 47-year-old man, showed up at the precinct across the street. Police say he was shot in the backside. Both are expected to recover.
It's still not clear why the two men were shot and if they knew the person who pulled the trigger.
