Gang Ties Suspected in Kensington Murder

Two gunman wearing “Scream” masks shot and killed a suspected gang member in broad daylight last week, the New York Daily News reported. The shooting occurred at 11:30am on Clara Street in Kensington, a neighborhood east of Sunset Park.

Andrea Swalec at CUNY Journalism followed up, and found residents in Kensington dissatisfied with the 66th Precincts crime-fighting efforts.

The 66th is one of several Precincts that has seen an uptick in homicides this year, a Jewish blog reported earlier this summer. The statistics cited do not include the five homicides that have taken place in Sunset Park since the end of August.
