This afternoon, we had a shooting in Greenpoint near Greenpoint Ave. and McGuinness Blvd. that reportedly resulted from a dispute between the boyfriend of a a landlord and a tenant; the boyfriend was shot in the head*. Hundreds of police were on the scene, and officials negotiated with the shooter for about an hour—eventually the suspect was captured by police. Photographer Johnny Cirillo was on the scene and snapped these striking images as the standoff was taking place.


*An earlier version of this story said that it was the landlord, not the boyfriend who was shot. We regret the error.
