A man was shot dead and his girlfriend wounded as they sat in a double-parked SUV in Brooklyn early Tuesday, a police source said. A gunman walked up to the black 2007 Mercedes Benz parked outside 675 Halsey St. near Patchen Ave. in Bedford-Stuyvesant at around 1 a.m. and opened fire, according to cops.
The male driver, identified as 33-year-old Ernest Brown, was rushed to nearby Interfaith Hospital with gunshot wounds to the head and torso, but he did not survive. The woman, 22, was taken to Kings County Hospital and is in stable condition. She was not immediately identified. Authorities described the suspect as a black male wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt.
