December 6, 2013 Brooklyn New York (New York Police Department – News12Brookyln) — Police have identified the victim in Monday morning’s Bed-Stuy shooting as Cory Goulbourne, 33. Goulbourne lived on East 37th Street in East Flatbush.

Police said Goulbourne could be seen on surveillance video coming out of the back exit of 77 Tompkins Ave. with another man. The other man, as yet unidentified, shoots Goulbourne in front of 85 Tompkins Ave., police said, then goes back inside 77 Tompkins Ave.

Police said Goulbourne crawled about 50 feet after being shot, before succumbing to his injuries. Later Monday morning, a trail of blood spatters could be seen starting from the middle of the pathway outside 85 Tompkins Ave. The spatters continue around the corner along the path leading out of the complex on to Tompkins Ave., but stop about midway. There, the remnants of a pool of blood was still visible several hours later.

The shooting occurred at the Tompkins Houses, a NYCHA public housing complex. This past summer, three teenage boys were shot at a basketball game at the nearby Marcy Houses.
