A 23- year-old woman was found dead late Monday night in Brooklyn Bridge Park.

She was shot one time in the head according to police.

The incident occurred south of 360 Furman Street near the bus stop behind the playground, west of Atlantic Avenue at approximately 9:30 PM.

Police said they responded to 911 call of a possible crime.  They have no witnesses at this time. 

Officers from the 84th Precinct and the Park Enforcement Patrol (PEP)  cordoned off the entrances to the park.

NYPD put up crime scene tape along Furman Street.

Detectives - in the background - search for evidence where the 23-year-old woman's body was found shot once in the head last night.

 NYPD cordoned off the Brooklyn Bridge Park entrance at Atlantic Avenue and Furman Street.

  1. A sad day for BBP. The communities surrounding the park have long advocated for attention to be paid to this entrance, with open-ness, safe passage into and out of the park. This entrance has not been designed well nor is there the openness we have long advocated - the landscaping is dark, scary and obscures sight lines. Time will tell the story of this tragic loss of life but to those who say people living inside the park will make it safer, clearly it will not. This happened within feet of the only occupied residential building in the park today. Judi Francis, President BBP Defense Fund
