Police are looking for the second of two suspects involved in the shooting of a father and his two-year-old son Thursday afternoon in Von King Park.
The shooting took place at approximately 2:00 p.m. in the park close to Marcy Avenue, near the Van Buren intersection.
The 39-year-old victim was with his son in the park when two men approached him and began to shoot, hitting the man in his hand and his arm. The toddler was shot through both of his elbows, according to police on the scene.
Both of the shooters fled the park in different directions, and the man ran with his son into the Von King Park Community Center, where the building personnel called the police.
The victims were taken immediately to Kings County Hospital where they remain in stable condition in the ICU trauma unit.
Police said the victim likely knew the shooters and was the target, while his son unintentionally was injured in the shower of bullets.
Officers pursued one suspect, a 19-year-old man, who ran into a building on Lafayette Street between Tompkins and Throop. He was captured and arrested and his identity has not been released.
The second suspect is still at large.
