NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Police have released new video of a wild shooting in Brooklyn that left two people dead, including an innocent bystander Monday night.
Police say Leroy Webster shot and killed 29-year-old Eusi “Randy” Johnson Monday night just after 9 p.m. in Crown Heights.
The shooting was captured on surveillance video at the scene. In the video, police say you can see Johnson and several others running away after Webster shot Johnson in the neck.

Foxy Brown may have just cleared of charges in her ‘mooning’ case, but she isnt going to let what she feels was a railroading by the powers that be go unnoticed.
The rapper and her attorney Salvatore Strazzullo plan to sue the city of New York, the New York Police Department and the District Attorney’s for “malicious prosecution.”
Tuesday (July 12) Fox Boog was cleared of charges that she mooned her neighbor Arlene Raymond in July 2010, thus violating her a order of protection against her obtained by her neighbor. Raymond refused to testify in court leaving the judge to clear Foxy of all charges.
“Its rooted in jealousy, it’s a [scary] thing like borderline obsession,” said Foxy, who denied the accusations. “Someone wants to be you and have the life I worked very hard for.”
Brown and her council were confident they could prove the defendant was lying had the case gone to trial telling the New York Daily News that Foxy’s penchant to not wear undergarments would have been the deciding factor in the case.
“Our big ace in the hold is she (Brown) wasn’t wearing any underwear,” Strazzulo told the Daily News.
Her accuser reported that she was exposed to Foxy’s underwear clad buttocks during an altercation last summer.
Jay-Z has been named as one of the celebrities that the Washington DC Police Department says may have received unauthorized police escorts.
The DCPD is conducting an internal investigation to see if celebrities such as Jigga, Bill Gates and Charlie Sheen – also named in the investigation – may have obtained police escorts, violating department procedure.
Police Chief Kathy Ranier recently voiced the department’s take on the matter saying police escorts are strictly for “presidents, vice presidents, visiting heads of state, mayor and others, if there’s a public safety issue.”
The New York Post reports that the city’s Law Department has received the lawsuit and plans to review it thoroughly.
