Gunfire Heard Last Night at Clinton and Stanton?
One Boogie reader reported hearing short bursts of gunfire at around 11 pm last night near the corner of Clinton and Stanton Streets. Our tipster speculates that it could be related to the “crew” that usually hangs out between Attorney and Ridge.
Last night around 11pm, I heard about six gunshots in two different bursts, maybe 30 seconds apart. My bedroom window faces the interior of the block bordered by Houston, Stanton, Clinton and Attorney.
Of course, this nook of the Lower East Side is no stranger to gunfire and crime. The most recent incident was a Christmas Eve altercation outside John’s Deli & Grocery at 37-39 Clinton Street that involved stabbing and shooting. Or the pregnant teen who was shot a month later outside 210 Stanton.
UPDATE: Some readers are suggesting that this was actually an incident of fireworks.
