Man slain, woman wounded in separate shootings in Brooklyn neighborhood
A man was shot dead and a woman was wounded by a gunshot to her face in separate incidents Saturday in an affluent Brooklyn neighborhood, police said.
Daniel Romulus, 62, was shot dead at around 7:30 p.m. in an apartment building at 580 E. 17th St., near the corner of Newkirk Ave. in Flatbush, police said.
Romulus suffered a gunshot wound to his chest, said police. He was taken to Kings County Hospital, but could not be saved.
Around 5 p.m. — 2½ hours earlier — a woman was shot in the face inside 1192 Ocean Ave., said cops. The shot was fired through the door of an apartment, said a law enforcement source.
The woman also was taken to Kings County Hospital, where she was reported in stable condition. The suspect in the shooting fled on foot.
The woman was shot about a half-mile from where Romulus was slain.
