Five people shot at J’Ouvert celebration in Brooklyn

Five people were shot, a 6-year-old boy and his mother included, at a J’Ouvert celebration in Brooklyn.

The mother and boy were getting out of a cab when two people started shooting into a crowd that was gathered around a small party in front of a house.

The shooting is believed to be gang-related, but it’s unknown who was the intended target.

The J’ouvert celebration was supposed to be virtual this year, but hundreds still took to the streets overnight.

Reports say the boy was shot in the leg and is expected to survive.

The chaos unfolded near the intersection of Crown Street and Nostrand Avenue.

Three men were also shot and taken to Kings County Hospital. All five victims are expected to recover from their injuries.

Two men are now being questioned.
