Killed on Snyder

A gunman opened fire on a couple on Snyder Avenue on March, killing a 20-year-old man.

Witnesses said that victim Marlon Hinds was standing in front of his apartment building, which is near E. 55th Street, chatting with a woman at 9:40 pm when the gunman opened fire, striking Hinds repeatedly.

Hinds died at the scene. The woman he was with was unharmed.

Cops are asking anyone with information regarding this shooting is urged to come forward.

Bullets and showers

A 14-year-old girl and two adults were wounded on April 3 following a shooting on E. 48th Street.

Police said that a baby shower was just wrapping up at 9:30 pm when the gunman approached the two men and the young women near Church Avenue, demanding their property.

The gunman opened fire seconds later, wounding all three victims.

Helix hang up

A convict was arrested on burglary charges last week when DNA recovered from a Nostrand Avenue crime scene came back to bite him.

Police said that someone broke into the home, which is between Tilden Avenue and Beverly Road, sometime after 8:45 am on Dec. 10, 2010, taking a laptop computer, some jewelry and a pair of shoes after forcing the front door lock.

Yet the thief left a pair of gloves behind. Crime scene investigators ultimately linked the DNA to a 44-year-old felon who had already been incarcerated for an unrelated crime.

Hit with machete

A 44-year-old was arrested on April 2 after he attacked another man on E. 55th Street.

The victim told police that the attacker — who he had an ongoing disagreement with — forced his way into his apartment, which is between Remsen and Clarkson avenues, at 7:30 am. The thug struck his victim with the dull end of his machete, leaving the man bruised, but not seriously harmed.

Gun-toting trio sought

Three thugs are being sought for gunning down a 43-year-old man on E. 15th Street on March 18 in what police are calling a robbery gone bad.

Investigators believe the unidentified males shot Avenue K resident David Apelewicz between Avenues H and I after trying to hold him up at 5:30 am.

Apelewicz was rushed to Kings County Hospital, but died of his injuries on March 27.

Anyone with information regarding this robbery is urged to come forward.

Shot on Schenectady

A trigger-happy gunman killed one man and wounded another during a March 21 confrontation on Schenectady Avenue.

Witnesses said the gunman opened fire on his two victims between Church and Snyder avenues at 5:25 pm, hitting a 23-year-old in the leg and chest. The 23-year-old was rushed to Kings County Hospital, where he died. The second man, 36, was shot in the leg and was listed in stable condition.

Cops are asking anyone with information regarding this shooting to come forward.
