Teen Shot Dead At Brooklyn Party
It’s a shame people can’t go to a party and enjoy themselves without getting shot.
According to NY Daily News:
They warned him not to go.
A 16-year-old boy was shot and killed at a Brooklyn party Saturday night — just hours after his parents reached out and told him someone was going to shoot the place up.
“They got my baby! They got my baby!” Tiana Williams wailed as she arrived at the scene where her son Iquan lay murdered in a building’s doorway.
“We told him not to go,” a grief-stricken Williams said.
The Frederick Douglass Academy sophomore had made plans to attend the party on Prospect Place near Thomas Boyland St. in Brownsville, but his brother found out on Facebook that someone was planning to bring a gun to the party.
“We called him at 9 p.m., and said, ‘Don’t go.’” Williams said, tears streaming down her face. “He texted me (around 10 p.m.). I said, ‘Watch your surroundings. Be careful.’ He said, ‘I love you.’ I said, ‘I love you.’”
“He said he wouldn’t, but he went … ” the Bushwick mom said, her voice breaking in anguish.
Williams’ warnings proved true.
Someone opened fire at the party at 10:30 p.m., killing Iquan.
“My son didn’t deserve this. We don’t deserve to be out here crying… I want whoever did this. “They ripped our hearts out.”
Prayers go out to his family.
