NYC: Two injured in separate Brooklyn shootings overnight, cops say

An 18-year-old woman was shot in the knee blocks from Prospect Park Monday night — and a 37-year-old man was blasted multiple times inside a Brooklyn laundromat in a separate incident, cops said. 

The teen victim was walking on Winthrop Street near Rogers Avenue in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens just before 10:30 p.m., with another person, when someone fired from a gray vehicle, striking her, police said. 

She was taken to the Kings County Hospital Center with non-life-threatening injuries. 

It wasn’t immediately clear whether she was the intended target. 

Earlier in the evening, around 8 p.m., a 37-year-old man was blasted four times in the leg inside the Oceanview Laundromat on Ocean Avenue near Church Avenue in Prospect Park South, cops said.
