Two men were shot in Brooklyn Thursday afternoon, one of them fatally.

It happened in front of 267 Ashford Street in East New York at 3:36 p.m.

A 50-year-old man was shot in the face and pronounced dead.

A 22-year-old man was shot once in the arm and taken to Brookdale University Hospital where he is in stable condition.

Police say there is nothing connecting the two men to each other so they are investigating if the 50-year-old man may be an innocent victim and not the intended target of the shooting.

"Im like the old man who dress in the suit and has the bible all the time. I'm like oh my god. Not him!" said Monique Ratliff, a resident.

So far there are no arrests.
