NYC Gunshot Victims Refuse to Cooperate or Talk to Police — Man Dies and Takes Shooter’s Identity to the Grave
From the NY Post:
In the early morning hours of July 5, Stephon Johnson was shot in the back on 116th Street near Morningside Park.
Even as his life slipped away at Mount Sinai Morningside, the East Harlem resident refused to help police catch his killer, the NYPD said, noting he was “uncooperative.”
The 23-year-old died less than a half-hour after the 2:40 a.m. shooting. With little to go on, investigators canvassed the area for ballistic evidence and video. The case remains unsolved.
On July 31, an 18-year-old man was shot in the stomach at North Elliott Place and Park Avenue, near the Brooklyn Navy Yard, at around 1:10 a.m. Cops described him as “highly uncooperative.”
