A 39-year-old man was shot and killed early Thursday morning in East Flatbush.

Police officers responded to a 911 call reporting an assault around 1:45 a.m. near Clarendon Road and East 54th Street. When they arrived, they found the victim unconscious and unresponsive with multiple gun shot wounds, police said.

The man was rushed to Kings County Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

At press time, there were no arrests and the victim’s name had not been released. The investigation is ongoing.

The incident comes less than a week after two unidentified men shot several people in East New York on Friday night.

A 24-year-old man was hit in the arm and leg, a 30-year-old man was hit in the leg, and a 27-year-old female was shot in the rear and the arm.

All three victims were rushed to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The gunmen fled in an occupied Jeep SUV. No arrests have been made in that incident, either.
