A shooter killed a 26-year-old man in Crown Heights before dawn on Friday, within walking distance of a grisly stabbing that left two people dead in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens on Wednesday night.

Police found victim Thierno Barry bleeding from gunshot wounds to his face and torso on Montgomery Street, around the corner from his home at Bedford Avenue’s Ebbets Fields apartment complex, at 3:12 am, cops said.

Paramedics rushed the man to Kings County Hospital, where doctors declared him dead, according to authorities.

No arrests were made following the early-morning shooting, and an investigation is ongoing, cops said.

Barry’s slaying came less than two days after the brutal stabbing of 59-year-old Hazel Brown and 65-year-old Stephenson Bonaparte, who were fatally slashed at their Winthrop Street home between Nostrand and Rogers avenues on Wednesday.

Police discovered the victims with multiple stab wounds after responding to a 911 robbery call at 6:41 pm, officials said.

Brown was pronounced dead at the scene, and medics rushed Bonaparte to nearby Kings County Hospital — located less than two blocks from the stabbing — but ultimately arrived too late, and physicians pronounced him dead, authorities said.

The pair’s attacker also remains on the lam, according to cops, who said their investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information regarding these incidents is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477. The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at or by texting tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577. All tips are strictly confidential.
