We are on the street in front of 101 Stanton St., near the corner with Ludlow, where a woman is apparently dead in an upstairs apartment, according to sources at the scene. Police arrived on the block around 1 p.m., according to witnesses who then saw an older man led out of the building in handcuffs and taken away.
A young teenage boy also emerged from the building, covered in blood, and was taken away by police, said one witness who was drinking coffee on a bench outside of D’Espresso across the street when the sirens erupted.
We’ll have more on the story as it unfolds, but so far, police are tight-lipped on details as they await the medical examiner.
The building is a six-story brick tenement building whose ground floor houses the Pimps & Pinups Salon and Bisous Ciao macaron store. It’s just a few blocks west of 190 Stanton St., where a fatal stabbing occurred last month.
