An unidentified 22-year-old Redfern resident realized that he was shot once in the foot on Thursday after hearing several shots in the distance.
The unidentified man told police that he was in front of 1310 Redfern Avenue in Far Rockaway at approximately 1:04 a.m. when he heard several shots.
He said that he felt a sharp pain in his foot and saw that he was bleeding.
He was removed to Jamaica Hospital, where he remains in stable condition.
