Three Murdered in Bushwick, Bedford-Stuyvesant


Three people were murdered within the same hour and a half in unrelated incidents in Brooklyn’s Bushwick and Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhoods last night. Twenty-two-year-old Aleisha Thompson was shot while she dialed 911 on a pay phone at the corner of Hancock Street and Bushwick Avenue at 1 a.m. Within the hour, 32-year-old Zacquran Horton was found dead near Halsey Street with a gunshot wound to his back, after being jumped. And only about ten minutes later, Kevin Grandison, 26, was found lying on the ground near Halsey Street with a stab wound to his chest, apparently the result of a dispute with an alcoholic neighbor.
