Following Saturday night’s waves of booze-shed revelers on Morton Street (between Bedford & Hudson) and waves of vehicles blasting music terrorizing residents—came the cry of HELP ME! HELP ME! sometime around 2:15 Sunday morning.
A man shouted that he’d been hit. By what was unclear. Car? Motorcycle? Bullets?
[Note: The updated story is that the guy’s injuries may have been self-inflicted, incurred by smashing into the front of 55 Morton Street—which is where the trail of blood begins. . .]
There were still stragglers out and about on Morton at 2:15. Several women in second skin attire stopped to tend to the man and called for an ambulance, which soon arrived. All appeared under control, and I hope EMS reached the hospital in time to save the man’s life. He lost a lot of blood. . .
Meantime, the neighborhood continues to disintegrate. Morton Street (between Bedford & Hudson) should be gated between 10pm and 6am and traffic diverted to the main thoroughfares. Morton Street also urgently needs a cop on the beat, particularly on weekends.
