Killed in costume
A gunman killed a 25-year-old woman and wounded another man during a bloody exchange outside the Sheepshead/Nostrand Houses.
Police said Ciera Glenn was leaving a Batchelder Street building between Avenues W and X at 5:45 am when she was shot in the thigh, abdomen and head. She was with a 27-year-old man who lived in the building.
Glenn, a resident of Crown Heights who had been leaving the building following a Halloween party, died at the scene.
The man she was with suffered a gunshot wound to the chin, and was able to take himself to the hospital, where he was listed in stable condition.
Cops are investigating the killing. Two guns were reportedly used in the bloodbath — a .22 caliber pistol and .45 caliber weapon, police said.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to come forward. Calls can be made to the NYPD CrimeStoppers hotline at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
