Brooklyn Today: July 2, 2012

Brooklyn Daily Eagle

Good morning. Today is the 184th day of the year. Most of the front page of the July 2, 1902, Brooklyn Daily Eagle was dedicated to the shooting of a Brooklyn businessman, Albert C. Latimer, by a burglar who invaded his home on Hancock Street, Bedford-Stuyvesant. The article notes that the details of the crime were almost identical to the robbery and murder of another man, Lyman Weeks, in his DeKalb Avenue home.

Well-known people who were born today include former baseball player Jose Canseco Jr., actress Lindsay Lohan, race car driver Richard Petty and Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir.
