Police are searching for a suspect who they say shot a man in the groin on St. Edwards Street in Fort Greene on June 4.
Paramedics found the 20-year-old victim by the sidewalk at the corner of Ashland Place and Willoughby Street Downtown around 10:50 p.m., according to police.
The wounded man fled out of the ambulance when one of the emergency personnel suggested calling the cops, the authorities said.
Police later found the shot man lying outside the rear of Brooklyn Hospital Center at DeKalb Avenue where paramedics were again treating the victim, around 11:50 p.m.
Emergency staff brought him to Methodist Hospital and treated him for his injuries before cops questioned him about the shooting, according to the authorities.
The victim is in stable condition and the investigation remains ongoing, according to an NYPD spokesman.
