Unidentified man, 51, fatally shot in East Flatbush

A 51-year-old man was fatally shot in East Flatbush Saturday morning, police said.

Cops responding to a 911 call for Utica Avenue and Rutland Road at 10 a.m. found the unidentified victim shot in the head outside 575 Utica Ave., an NYPD spokesman said.

He was pronounced dead at the scene. Police did not know the nature of the dispute.

Neighborhood residents said the victim was a mechanic.

Residents decried the ongoing plague of gunplay across the Big Apple.

“It’s crazy … It ain’t worth it, man. It’d been better to with whatever differences there were, fight and live to see tomorrow. I’d rather get beat up than get shot. There’s just too much killing going on,” the man said.

No other details were immediately available. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
