Two men were shot outside a corner bodega in Brooklyn on Saturday night, leaving the sidewalk littered with shell casings.

The bullets flew at 11:20 p.m. at Stanley Avenue and Crescent Street in East New York.

The two men who were shot — one aged 39 and the other aged 35 — were able to hobble off to the nearby Pink Houses project, even though the older victim had a graze wound to his right leg and the younger one took a bullet to his right hip, police said.

Both were taken to the hospital; police had no suspect information early Sunday.

At least seven shell casings were left scattered outside the Deli & Grill bodega.

“A customer came up to the window to buy rolling papers,” said a clerk, 66, who declined to give his name.

“He pays. He was walking away. Then I hear shots. He starts running. I was in the back at the time. I didn’t come out,” he added.


“Of course, I was scared. Those were bullets, not blanks.”
