A gunman fatally blasted a 22-year-old man in the face at a Brooklyn nightclub Sunday morning, cops said. The assailant shot a fellow reveler once in the face at Brooklyn Asylum, a late night venue on Flushing Ave. near Scott Ave. in Bushwick around 5:20 a.m., according to police. No immediate arrests were made as cops investigated early Sunday.
That’s supposed to be a nightclub? Shouldn’t there be a sign bearing the name? That looks like it should be the office of a hapless contractor, accountant, lawyer or fringe political candidate running for office. Of course it’s not the only one. And hipsters are willing to pay 2000 to 2500 dollars a month to live around there.
