Bystander shot after fight near Barclays Center

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.
