Gunfire Erupts At Brooklyn Park Festival, Leaving 1 Dead and 11 Injured

Many Brooklyn natives gathered at Brownsville Playground for the yearly Oldtimers Day festival this past Saturday night which left one dead and nearly a dozen injured according to the New York City Police Department.

The victim, Jason Pagan, 38 was shot in the head and pronounced dead at a nearby hospital. There were 11 other people who were shot and transported for treatment -- seven men and five women. One of those victims is in serious condition.

"I want to thank the NYPD for a swift response, which unquestionably helped to make sure that those who were struck were saved," Mayor De Blasio stated in a press statement. 

"I want to make really clear this tragedy does not define Brownsville does not define the people Brownsville," he added.

No one has been arrested, however, police are still looking for two suspects.
