NYPD searching for suspect after shooting in Brooklyn leaves 1 dead

Yet another shooting in Crown Heights has left a 23-year-old man dead and the NYPD on the hunt for a suspect wanted in connection to the murder.

Authorities have released surveillance photographs of a man they say shot Nicholas Isaac of Brooklyn multiple times following a dispute on Nostrand Avenue. Isaac was shot several times in the legs and chest and was taken to NYC Health + Hospitals/Kings County, where he died.
