One of two people shot outside a Thai restaurant in a Brooklyn neighborhood Friday evening has been identified by two law enforcement sources as an assistant U.S. attorney in the Southern District of New York.
The sources say the 34-year-old woman was dining outside at the Prospect Heights restaurant on Washington Avenue when she was struck in the eye by a bullet fragment.
It was around 9 p.m. when bullets flew in the direction of the restaurant and into the crowd of diners and people passing by on foot.
Another victim, a 31-year-old Staten Island man, happened to be walking in the area at the time of the shooting and was struck in his right foot, according to police.
