Woman shot in chest through second-floor kitchen window in Brooklyn

EAST FLATBUSH, Brooklyn (WABC) -- A woman was shot in the chest when a bullet fired on the street came through her second-floor kitchen window in Brooklyn late Wednesday.

It happened on Linden Boulevard in East Flatbush around 11:15 p.m.

"I feel very bad when I listen, because she's a nice lady," one neighbor said. "I don't know what happened."

The 57-year-old woman, who lives in the apartment with her family, was taken to Kings County Hospital in stable condition.

"She started to yell, 'I was shot,'" building owner Solomon Landau said. "And he woke up and saw she was bleeding and called police."

Solomon is working with detectives to try and track down any video from the many surveillance cameras outside as they try and piece together the events that unfolded.

The victim was not believed to be the intended target, and she is expected to survive.

"She's in surgery, and the bullet went into her lungs," Solomon said.

Police searched the area and found a car window shattered and evidence of multiple shots fired.

No one was in the vehicle with the broken window.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
