Police say a gunman killed 33-year-old Ramel King as he sat in his car on May 8, around 2:30 a.m. at Williams Place and Atlantic Avenue.
The NYPD's ShotSpotter gunshot detection tool alerted police to the incident. Police say they arrived in the area and found King with a gunshot wound to the chest. Nearby surveillance video showed the suspected killer walking around the block.
King's mother told News 12 that he was a father of four young children. He also left behind a wife, four brothers, four sisters and 19 nieces and nephews.
"Ramel was my third oldest child, and I have to live with this the rest of my life; he got killed on Mother's Day. What mother wants to hear that that their child was killed on Mother's Day, so I'm just dealing with it a day at a time,” says King’s mother, Patricia Robinson.
Police are offering a reward for any information leading to an arrest and conviction. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
