Police are investigating a possible act of hate as shots were fired toward a Brooklyn synagogue, Wednesday night.
Police are continuing their investigation Friday after a complaint report was filed in regard to shots fired from an unknown device, leaving many questions unanswered.
Police say a 53-year-old man reported that on Wednesday just after 10:30 p.m., four pellets from an unknown device were shot toward 3762 18th Ave.
News 12 is told those shots caused damage to an outside wall. According to the Anti-Defamation League, police reports indicate the man was dismantling a sukkah in front of the Brooklyn synagogue following the Jewish holiday of Sukkot.
Following the incident, the ADL is speaking out, offering a reward of up to $5,000 for any information that could lead to an arrest of the person responsible for firing metal objects toward a man they say was identifiably Jewish.
The Hate Crimes Task Force was notified as this incident remains under investigation.
Anyone with information in relation to this incident is asked to call the police.
