Three people were killed and two police officers were injured in a gun fight in Brooklyn Monday evening — the latest bloodshed in a violent holiday weekend in New York City that saw at least 48 people shot.

An exchange of gunfire between two men broke out in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood around 9 p.m. Monday, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said at a news conference.

Officers patrolling the nearby West Indian Parade and Carnival, the site of an earlier shooting Monday, responded to the scene.

“The officers were fired upon and returned fire,” Bloomberg said.

Police identified the gunmen, who both died in the shooting, as Eusi Randy Johnson, 29, and Leroy Webster, 32. Johnson died after Webster shot him in the neck, while Webster was killed by police, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said.

The dispute started as a fistfight in a hallway, then spilled into the street as it escalated, Bloomberg said. It was not clear what the disagreement was over, the mayor said.

A bullet Webster fired “struck an innocent 56-year-old woman sitting on her stoop two doors down,” Bloomberg said. The woman’s name was Denise Gay and her daughter was at her side when she died, the mayor said.

After rushing to the scene, officer Omar Medina “was hit by bullet fragments in his left arm and chest,” Bloomberg said.

He was taken to a nearby hospital and was in stable condition, police said. A second officer, Avichaim Dicken, received a graze wound on his elbow.

Webster had a lengthy criminal record that included arrests for assault, drugs and guns, Kelly said.

The gun battle comes during a holiday weekend marred by shootings, with 33 people shot on Sunday alone.


A Phoenix man accidentally blew his dick off in a supermarket parking lot, after he tucked his girlfriend’s “pink pistol in the waistband of his pants.” According to a stone-faced police officer on the scene in this ABC15 report, the gun then accidentally discharged, sending a bullet directly through his penis and through his left leg.

The Hamburgler may steal the occasional patty, but he would never stoop this low.

Florida police arrested a man on Monday after he repulsed McDonald’s customers by allegedly holding a 10-minute pimple popping session outside the restaurant chain’s Cape Coral location, the Fort Myers News-Press reports.

When an off duty officer discovered that Port Charlotte resident Owen Lemire Kato, 23, wassqueezing his back zits in front of the McDonald’s, he asked the suspect for his name.

Police said Kato, who has an outstanding warrant, gave the name “John Smith” before eventually relinquishing his actual identity. Not exactly lovin’ his situation, the pimple popper then allegedly made a run for it.

Another cop eventually tackled Kato and took him into custody. Police allegedly found a syringe in Kato’s pocket, which the suspect’s girlfriend said he used to inject Oxycontin, according to theNews-Press.

Kato was charged with providing false identification to a police officer, resisting arrest, and possession of drug equipment.

Met website hacked

A top cop website was hacked – by a monster-type creature!

The cheeky hackers broke into London’s Metropolitan Police recruitment website, and posted a picture of a cuddly toy on its front page.

And beneath the picture of the green stripy animal they added taunting comments.

The message posted by “Officer Brobee” referred to the Scotland Yard’s SO15 counter-terrorism unit.

It said: “OH HAI GUYS do joo wanna bes a policeman lulz?”

“I see that teh so15 anti-terrorism anti-lulz police are hiring more incompetent nervy edgy socipaths to make London’s streets just that little bit safer!”

“OH LULZ. SHOUTS TO l0g1kal for being such a leet dude and to LULKITTEH for being so fancy.”

A spokesman for the Met said they were aware of the hack.

“We are aware of an unauthorised image and text having been placed on the Met Careers internet site,” a statement issued by the force said.

“The Met Careers site is managed by an external company who are responsible for its upkeep.

“We will discuss this with the service provider at the earliest possible time.”

The embarrassing message and cuddly monster were later removed.
