BUSHWICK – Two NYPD officers were suspended after they allegedly failed to investigate a 911 call about a person in need, leaving a man bleeding on the ground in Brooklyn.
Robert Fason, 44, and another man, 43, were assaulted by three other men outside a bar on Broadway, near Eldert Street, in Bushwick on Saturday at about 3:30 a.m., police said. One of the suspects shot Fason in the torso and the other man in the neck.
The 43-year-old man was taken to an area hospital in critical, but stable, condition, police said. But Fason somehow walked several blocks from where the shooting happened and collapsed in front of a home on Decatur Street, between Saratoga Avenue and Thomas S Boyland Street.
