        The shooting was reported at about 2:15 a.m. Sunday in the first  block of Sixth Street.

        A 42-year-old victim was approached by two suspects, one of whom  took out a handgun and shot him five times, according to police. A stray  bullet also struck a 25-year-old passerby in the chest, police said.     After the shooting, the suspects jumped into a black limousine  that had at least eight other occupants, according to police.
