Widow of Brooklyn shooting victim says she’d feared for his safety: ‘I used to beg him to stay home’

The wife of a man shot to death over the weekend on a Brooklyn street said she’d feared for his safety and used to beg him to stay home.

But, she explained, her people-pleasing husband got caught up with the wrong crowd. The association led to Peter George’s violent death Sunday evening on a residential street in East Flatbush, she suspects.

Cops said the victim, 38, was shot in the chest along E. 51st near Linden Blvd. shortly after 7 p.m. The gunman shot from inside a car, according to police.

Medics rushed George to Brookdale Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. There have been no arrests.

Widow Kaisha George, 45, said she got the news about her husband from her sister, who’d learned of the shooting on Citizen App.

She said that despite living apart because of some marital problems, she was devastated by the killing.

“We had issues as a couple, but we always have a love for each other,” she told the Daily News. “This was just crazy. He was just in bad company.”

George said they were married just last year in August in an intimate ceremony in a Brooklyn church. She said that the two of them were both from Grenada and that their love story was one of the best things that ever happened to her — even though she was always afraid for him.

“I always wanted what was good for Peter, but outside influence is a whole different ball game,” she said. “Even if you’re married, this is what I never had control over. It’s just crazy.”

The wife said she picked up on things like phone conversations and exchanges with people she didn’t know. She could feel danger lurking, she added.

“I always worried about him. Every time he leaves and he goes outside I just worried,” George said. “I just didn’t want anything bad to happen to him. I used to beg him to stay home: ‘Just stay home. You don’t have to be out there. Just stay home.’”

She described Peter George, a construction worker, as a loving man who’d had a rough childhood.

“He just did not get the love that he needed at a very young age,” she said. " So me, I came into his life and with him explaining everything to me, I always showed him the positive in everything.”

She said there were two things that her husband loved: her and his music.

“He was always playing his music and dancing,” she said. “Any kind of music, as long as it makes a beat.”

The victim had no family in America, according to George.

“I’m his family,” she said.
