Alvin Davis, a resident of NYCHA's Tompkins Houses, expressed his concern about the violence in the area to The Post.
'I got grandkids who live out here in this complex,' he said.
'This gun violence has got to cease. I mean it's crazy. It's black-on-black crime. People are doing things that shouldn't be done and I feel like it's time to really come together and be able to socialize in friendly and Christian love and also just be brothers and sisters in harmony.'
He stated, 'This violence is not the way.'
Wednesday's shooting is the most recent in a violent string of attacks as the city has continued to face rising gun violence.
NYPD data shows that the city has recorded 1,041 shooting incidents and 1,246 shooting victims this year compared to 989 shooting incidents and 1,217 shooting victims in the same period last year.
As shootings have increased, so have the amount of gunmen on scooters.
A man was caught on video on August 1 sprinting through the streets near Times Square firing a gun at his fleeing target and then riding off on a red and black scooter.
