Five people were shot along the boardwalk in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, Thursday afternoon during a mini heat wave that had packed the citys beaches.
Two of the victims are badly wounded, the authorities said.
The shooting took place around 5:20 p.m. on the boardwalk near Brighton Sixth Street, the Fire Department said.
The shooting unfolded on a day when a mini-heat wave and a school holiday sent hordes of people to Coney Island and Brighton Beaches, which were teeming with beachgoers many of them teenagers trying to escape temperatures approaching 100 degrees.

The oppressive heat is going to be the excuse for this year’s riots as well. some folks just don’t take the heat so well dontchaknow.
Here’s the update:
Gunfire on Boardwalk Kills One and Injures 4
I haven’t heard about this until just now. Nobody said anything to me. I don’t even know if I know anybody involved in this.
The Gothamist has some video and other information on the this shooting. I’m not a fan of crowds, and this adds more confirmation. I like to be where a lot of other people are not.
Mighty good place to not be at.
Looks like Bay 5. I roamed those boardwalks as a child. Bay 1 had better waves. Played basketball at the brighten 2nd street park and played handball off ocean parkway.
Miss those days.
Crowds of Black people always seem to have shootings/killings.
I should probably post a warning. I didn’t view the video I linked to - and now I’m not going to - but I hear from another blog that it includes footage a dying victim.
Cripes, I was over there on Monday afternoon. Sheesh, go figure.
Holly cow. have you seen the comments over at http://gothamist.com???
I don’t think electing Obama fixed race relations in this country.
"I neva dreamt the air-conditioner be spittin bullets!"
Looks like a diversity shooting.
“I havent heard about this until just now. Nobody said anything to me. I dont even know if I know anybody involved in this.”
Really, couldn’t we all say this about 99% of the news?
