The Daily News has more on the "BB gun thug terrorizing" the area near Avenue D and 3rd Street. According to the story at least 8 people have been hit and several car windows have been blown out. Police, who suspect the shooter is stationed in an upper floor of the Lilian Wald Houses, have stepped up patrols:

One construction worker said he was shot on Friday – and doctors later found a pair of pellets lodged next to his skull. "I put my hand up there and felt the blood," said Edward Gilyard, 49, who was standing at his job site when he felt a sharp pain on his right temple."I figured the only thing it could be was some sort of shot," said Gilyard, of Flatbush, Brooklyn. "All of a sudden, I had a little hole in my head." Gilyard,
who saw the rear window of a taxi get shattered minutes after he was
shot, returned to work yesterday, but said he was staying behind a tree
when he had to venture outside the walled-off work site… Edwin Rivera, 47, was hit twice on Thursday, each time as he stood on the corner of E. Third St. chatting with friends, he said. "I
was thinking something had shot me then I saw I was bleeding," said
Rivera, who displayed the large red welt left by a pellet on his left
bicep.
