Broad-daylight Brooklyn gun murder captured on video; cops seek suspect

·1 min read

It was a brazen broad-daylight killing — a hoodie-wearing man pulled out a gun on a Brooklyn street and fired several shots into a group of people gathered at a stoop in Crown Heights.

Myles Jabateh, 19, died Friday of a bullet wound to his head, police said on Saturday.

His killer, wearing a black hoodie, a surgical mask, light-colored jeans and blue sneakers with blue laces, struck at 4:55 p.m. Thursday near Prospect Place and Ralph Ave., said cops.

The man walked up near the edge of a sidewalk, pulled out a handgun, and fired five to seven shots across the street, video shows.

Jabateh was among the group at the stoop on Prospect Place between Ralph Ave. and Buffalo Ave. He took two bullets — one to his head, the other to his buttocks, police said.

The shooter was last seen running away west on Prospect Place.

Cops rushed to the scene. Bystanders said officers tried desperately to save Jabateh’s life.

First, he was taken to Interfaith Medical Center, a mile away on Atlantic Ave. Later, he was transferred to Maimonides Medical Center, where he died.

Jabateh lived on the block where he was shot, said cops.
