An innocent bystander was shot near the Barclays Center in Brooklyn Wednesday afternoon, according to police sources.
Two men got into an argument around 2 p.m. at the corner of Flatbush and Atlantic avenues when at least one of them opened fire outside the busy Atlantic Terminal Mall, striking a bystander in the ankle, police and sources said.
The victim is in stable condition, but cops are still searching for the two men who got into the fight, according to a tweet from NYPD spokesman J. Peter Donald.
“No panic. One person was shot in the leg, who is in stable condition. @NYPD78Pct has an extensive search underway for two black males,” he wrote.
