Mother Shot And Killed Outside Brooklyn Hospital While Daughter Suffered Asthma Attack
A 32-year-old mother was fatally shot Tuesday outside a Brooklyn hospital where her 8-year-old daughter was being treated for asthma, police sources said.
Shalema Gaskin was with her daughter and the child’s father at Brookdale University Hospital when she left to check on another child at her Kings Highway apartment a block away shortly before 3:15 a.m., sources said.
The father stayed at the 8-year-old’s bedside.
A short time later, a passerby saw Gaskin bleeding from a bullet wound to her neck behind the hospital E. 98th St. and Hegeman Ave., police said.
Gaskin was rushed into the emergency room, but she could not be saved.
