When it rains it pours! Sheepshead Bites just received word of a double shooting stabbing at East 24th Street and Avenue Y, across from Bill Brown Park. We are sending someone to the scene and will have more information as it becomes available.

UPDATE (5:05 p.m.): We’ve confirmed that there is an NYPD Level 1 Mobilization in effect at East 24th and Avenue Y, a response reserved for incidents such as shootings, bank robberies and special category missing person.

UPDATE (5:10 p.m.): Now hearing two dead, one transported, stabbing and carjacking. This is unconfirmed.

UPDATE (5:40 p.m.): Our reader on the ground told us that he heard that the perp in this crime exited a silver Lexus and stabbed two people before taking their car. We’re beginning to think this is related to the murder this morning in which Maksim Gelman stabbed his stepfather to death before fleeing in a silver Lexus.

UPDATE (5:57 p.m.): Confirmed homicide and carjacking. Police now searching for a green 1995 Pontiac Bonneville with plate numbers KJX189. Perp fled in an unknown direction. If you see this car, call 911 immediately! Perp remains armed and dangerous, so seek safety.

UPDATE (6:08 p.m.): CONFIRMED! It is the same Maksim Gelman as this morning’s murder. He is now wanted for the stabbing deaths of three individuals. In addition to killing his stepfather this morning, he is now suspected of killing his girlfriend and her mother. He took their car, the green 1995 Pontiac Bonneville, and fled. Then he struck a female pedestrian at Ocean Avenue and Avenue R, leaving her in critical condition.

Call 911 if you have information on the wherabouts of MAKSIM GELMAN – M/W/23, 6’00 170 LBS – last seen wearing a white shirt and black hat, driving a green 1995 Pontiac Bonneville. HE IS ARMED AND DANGEROUS!

    Indeed, it is a strange day in Sheepshead Bay. Perhaps the warmer (less cold?) weather brings out the creeps. I once liked global warming. Bring back the cold and snow!

    According to @NYScanner, it was a stabbing, not shooting, on E 24th and Avenue U.

    • Glasspryncess

      I am wondering what happened on Avenue R and Ocean Avenue earlier today before the incident on East 24th street….are they related?

    • http://www.nedberke.com Ned Berke

      Heard that too, but my guy on scene tells me there are houses there taped off and a witness talking to the cops about a shooting. Wondering if two separate incidents are getting mushed together. We’re sorting it out.

    So the perp left the silver Lexus at the scene, since he left in green Pontiac?
    Then it should easy to check the plates against the ones from Maksim Gelman’s Lexus, no?

    • levp

    NBC reported Avenue U – but they’re obviously wrong. They also said that Maksim was a black man.

    Daily News reports that the green Pontiac was that of an innocent motorist (not that of his GF):

    “Moments after killing the women, Gelman attacked a passing motorist – stabbing the innocent 42-year-old before stealing his Pontiac Bonneville, cops said.

    The carjacked man was taken to Lutheran Hospital in critical condition.”

      It’s nice to know that the cops are on this, but shouldn’t they be out looking, not parked?

      • nolastname

        I have been seeing a cop pass car every 5 minutes or less. They are
        combing the area.

    if they catch him and give him bail i will report this to IA. but indeed that he will get raped. if the feds take this over its a wrap. hopefully they will give him the death penalty or 3 consecutive life sentences
