A man was shot outside of a pair of hospitality businesses on Bay Street in Stapleton. He was taken to Staten Island University Hospital North, Ocean Breeze after being shot. The NYPD reported that the man was in critical condition.
The Richmond restaurant is located at 695 Bay Street, where the shooting occurred. Nearby is Edgewater Hall, a catering venue. When authorities arrived on the scene, they closed off the sidewalk at Dock Street and Bay, including outside both businesses, to the end of the street.
The police canvassed an alleyway behind Edgewater and the multistory structure, while diners remained inside the Richmond restaurant. A neighbor heard a single gunshot from her apartment across the street and described it as loud. No suspects have been taken into custody, and the investigation is still ongoing.
Stapleton has seen several shootings in recent weeks, including the tragic death of a 13-year-old who was shot in the head. Another incident involved a 14-year-old who fatally stabbed a 36-year-old man. Although a 19-year-old man was wounded at Broad and Cedar streets on Saturday night, he is said to be in stable condition.
