A chaotic chain of gunfire.

In East New York early Sunday morning, five men were shot outside a banquet hall in a chaotic chain of gunfire that left one dead and another wounded by a police sergeant's bullet, police said.

It happened around 1 a.m. on Atlantic Avenue in East New York.

Police said the havoc began when one man, whose age wasn't known, shot three others, killing one, on Atlantic Avenue near the East New York neighborhood.

Then the gunman was shot himself by a second shooter who ran off with an accomplice, police said.

Two officers and a sergeant heard the gunfire and chased the second gunman, who was still armed, down Atlantic Avenue before the sergeant shot him while endeavoring to arrest him, police said.

A 21-year-old man, believed to be a shooter, was also shot in the leg as officers placed him under arrest.

Of the other wounded men, one, whose age wasn't known, was in critical condition with three gunshot wounds to the torso.

FDNY EMS Paramedics said the wounds to the other two, aged 20 and 17,appeared life-threatening.

Hitting kicking and biting

Among children of mothers with low education levels, those who receive regular care from other adults during preschool years may be less likely to have problems with physical aggression.

Hitting, kicking, biting and other forms of physical aggression are central features of a severe conduct disorder.These behaviors may be associated with social, physical and mental health problems.The origin of physical aggression problems can be traced back to early childhood, and studies have specifically shown that maternal characteristics, especially low levels of education, are among the best predictors of high physical aggression from early childhood to adolescence.

Sylvana M. Côté, Ph.D., of the University of Montreal, and colleagues studied 1,759 infants representative of all children born in Quebec in 1997 or 1998. Mothers were interviewed yearly from the time the children were age 5 months to 60 months, answering questions about family, parent and child characteristics and behaviors. This included details about non-maternal care services, provided to care for a child, usually while the mother is working. This may have involved center-based day care, family arrangements or other non-maternal care provided regularly during preschool years. Physical aggression levels were evaluated at 17, 30, 42, 54, and 60 months.

Of the 1,691 children who were followed for the whole study, 111 (6.6 percent) received no non-maternal care before preschool, 234 (13.8 percent) received some type of non-maternal care beginning before age 9 months and 1,346 (79.6 percent) received non-maternal care beginning at age 9 months or after. Children whose mothers had a low education level (i.e., did not have a high school diploma) were less likely to receive day care. However, children who did receive non-maternal care had lower levels of physical aggression, and the association was statistically significant among children who started day care before age 9 months.Children of mothers who graduated from high school were at lower risk of developing physical aggression problems, and non-maternal care had no additional effect on their behavior.In summary we provide robust evidence that the provision of non-maternal care services to children of mothers with low levels of education could substantially reduce their risk of chronic physical aggression, and that the protective impact is more important if children begin to receive these services before age 9 months," the authors conclude. "Because the children most likely to benefit from non-maternal care services are those less likely to receive them, universal programs involving the provision of non-maternal care should include special measures encouraging the use of non-maternal care services among high-risk families.

He was lucky to have NYC FDNY EMT's save his ass

A would-be robber remains hospitalized after a bodega owner fought him off with a machete in Woodhaven, Queens, Wednesday night.

It was hand-to-hand combat in an all-out, bloody brawl. We asked the store owner if he'd do anything differently. He said next time, he'd have two machetes.

"Whether it was to rob or to kill him, but then after he hit him with the machete, the robber said, 'Just call the cops, please just call the cops,'" Johann Marte said through his translator, Queens Assemblyman Jose Peralta.

Hiding his face for now, in case someone seeks revenge, the bodega owner justified reducing the robber to a bloody mess last night.
"He pulled his gun, I pulled my machete and we went to war," Marte said.

Marte, a father of four, said the alleged criminal walked in his Woodhaven corner store with guns blazing, then wound up begging him to call the police.

"He was aiming for the gun," Peralta said. "As soon as he saw the gun, he was aiming for the gun, and that's all he was aiming for. He started swinging away at the gun, and it was lucky for him he ended up hitting the hand.
Marte's machete slashed the gun-toting bandit's trigger finger off, along with part of his ear, in a battle witnesses believe the suspect deserved.

"He had to protect himself," one said. "You do what you can."

Local legislators warn store owners not to fight violence with violence. They're pushing for bodega safety measures, like panic buttons, connected to local precincts.

"He was very lucky to endure what he did, but we want to teach bodega owners not to do what he did," Peralta said. "Because unfortunately, nine times out of 10, they will end up dead."

Still, an eye-for-an-eye, says Marte, who was fired at four times before his machete beat the bullets.
"I came here to work, to work hard, and I work hard everyday," Marte said through Peralta. "And I had to defend myself, and that's what I did.

The store has been robbed three times in the past, and it seems the Queens district attorney will treat this as self-defense and not charge Marte with anything. The robber-turned-victim is still recovering. He faces a number of charges.He was lucky to have NYC FDNY EMT's save his ass

An ongoing landlord-tenant dispute took a violent turn in Brooklyn Tuesday.
Two people were treated for burns after being splashed with a chemical in the Bath Beach section.

This confrontation unfolded in the first floor of the building on Bay 16th Street. Police and witnesses say an irate knife-wielding tenant left his apartment and headed to the super's apartment. The tenant's girlfriend reportedly followed him, begging him to calm down.

Coincidentally, the super was leaving his apartment to unclog a sink at another unit when he was confronted.

Both the tenant and his girlfriend were burned. Authorities say the fire department had to cut their clothes off of them on the street. They were treated by NYC EMS and taken to Staten Island University Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Both the tenant and the super are facing charges.
