October 2, 2013 (WABCTV) – Police are searching for the killer who shot an innocent bystander Tuesday morning at a Brooklyn apartment complex.
Now, they’ve identified the man they are looking for as 21-year-old Corey Brown.
The shooting happened around 11:30 a.m. in the courtyard of the Lafayette Houses on DeKalb Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant.
Officers found 24-year-old Nicholeia Taylor with a gunshot wound to the chest. She was taken to Brooklyn Hospital, where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
Taylor, a mother who works with special needs children at night, was walking through the courtyard on her way to the gym when the gunfire erupted. At least five shots were fired.
The bullet casings were spread out, so the gunman was apparently moving as he was shooting.
Taylor’s family is devastated and angry that this good mother and sister is suddenly gone.
“A hard-working mother, mother of one, goes to work every day, graduated school, college girl, got caught in the crossfire for a person that doesn’t know how to aim, whoever he trying to shoot at,” one relative said. “These little hooligans need to get a life, and I hope that they catch him and put him under the jail.”
Brown is described as a black male approximately 5-foot-10 and weighing 180 pounds.
Anyone with information in regards to this homicide is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
