A 20-year-old man was hospitalized in critical condition after being shot in the stomach at the Marlboro Houses (2250 West 11th Street) early this morning.

The man was exiting the elevator on the 16th floor of the building to visit his grandmother at approximately 1:40 a.m. when a gunman opened fire and put a bullet in his abdomen, police told this outlet.

The victim, whose identity was not released, was taken to Lutheran Hospital, where he remains in serious condition but is expected to survive.

Police do not yet have a suspect in the case, and are still investigating.

Marlboro Houses, like the majority of New York City Housing Authority developments, still do not have long-awaited security cameras. Earlier this month, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that work is finally underway on the $27 million installation of closed circuit cameras in 49 NYCHA developments, including the Marlboro Houses and Sheepshead – Nostrand Houses, and should be complete by the end of the year.

    Visiting grandma at 1:40am. Right, makes sense. I’m guessing the shooter was also “visiting” someone as well. None of these chumps belong in these projects and for a good reason. But god forbid they install bio-metric scanners at the door and it’s “raysisss yo”.
