I will make it a habit to point out that the criminal element of New York got the message from new Mayor Bill de Blasio that they can carry their guns without fear of being “stopped and frisked”. So every gun crime in NYC is on Bill de Blasio’s head. As far as this story goes, teens, always listen to your parents.
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.’”
Someone opened fire at the party at 10:30 p.m., killing Iquan.
Another partygoer was rushed to St. John’s Hospital in critical condition, sources said.
The motive behind the shooting wasn’t immediately revealed.
Cops were still looking for the shooter Saturday night.
