A three-way feud among rival groups sparked a drive-by shooting in Brooklyn on Thursday night that left two young men dead and a third seriously injured, police said.
The three were hanging out on a stoop on Bainbridge St. in Bedford-Stuyvesant shortly before 6 p.m. when a rival crew drove down the block in an SUV and recognized them, sources said.
"They backed up and opened fire," a police source said.
One of the victims, Antoine "Fosdick" Stokes, 20, his body riddled with eight bullet holes, stumbled into the building where he lived with his mother.
Ernestine Stokes, 47, said she ran down from her apartment when she heard the gunfire - and found her son collapsed in a pool of blood.
"Call 911, Ma! I've been shot," he said, before falling silent.
Stokes and Steven Hill, 15, who was also shot several times, were later pronounced dead at Kings County Hospital. Derrick Henry, 14, was shot once in the chest and was in stable condition Thursday night.
The beef involved the gunned-down group, which hung out on Bainbridge St., and competing crews from the Brevoort Houses in Ocean Hill and the Jackie Robinson Houses in Manhattan, the police source said.
