While the city was forced to close yesterday due to an over-hyped “blizzard” situation, crime found a way. Two separate incidents transpired mere hours apart that had the 7th Precinct pretty busy.

At around 7pm last night, a 22-year-old man was approached from behind and shot four times in the back outside 203 Rivington Street. The victim, whose identity is unknown, was rushed to Bellevue and remains in critical condition. Police are looking for a “person of interest” described as wearing white sneakers and a black jacket.

Meanwhile, shortly after midnight, an officer responded to a 911 call inside the Vladeck Houses due to an alleged domestic violence dispute. Upon arrival, police found the 37-year-old male had barricaded himself inside the apartment and held a serrated knife to the 40-year-old woman’s neck. The suspect then began to stab the victim, and an officer fired five rounds hitting the guy in his torso. Both are in stable condition at Bellevue.

Charges are pending against the suspect.
