Man Found Dead on Carlton Avenue

Incident early Sunday is fourth fatal shooting at Fort Greene Houses this year.

A 27-year-old man was found Sunday with a single gunshot wound to the head at Whitman Houses, according to the New York Police Department.

The victim was pronounced dead at Brooklyn Hospital, police said. 

According to police, public housing safety officers discovered Jamor Crawford at 1:42 a.m. outside 124 Carlton Ave., a six-story residential tower.

Police said Crawford was a resident of a building on nearby Cumberland Walk.

Crawford is the fourth fatal shooting victim at Whitman, Ingersoll and Farragut Houses so far this year.

In March, Justin Cherry, 20, and Jaquan Webb, 21, were shot and killed within weeks of each other—prompting a march against gun violence led by local clergy, residents and elected officials.

Jorge Robaina, 30, was shot dead at Farragut Houses on Sept. 4.

There are no arrests, police said. The investigation is ongoing.

I heard the gunshots. The gunman shot the victim and fired 15, 20 shots into the air. I caught some footage of the medics tending to his wound on the ground.

If the police are ineffectual maybe it is time for some real gumshoe reporting here. Who was the boy killed and what are people saying it was about? And if the shooter actually fired that many shots (15-20) into the air there must have been other witnesses. And what are the police doing? Was any of this caught on camera, is the camera system adequate and functioning, etc. There are now at least three news operation ostensibly covering Ft Greene - the Patch, DNAinfo, The Local - how about some real reporting rather than being stenographers for events!

The videotape as painful as it is ought remain posted to YOU TUBE. Folks need to see the reality of the streets. People need to stop and think about the pain all these killings causes our community. Some of the ones who posted their oppostision to the tape are the same ones who push the 'no snitching' scam. Persons committing these crimes must know no safe haven in our community. Somebody knows something. How many folks have been shot and killed in that area in the past three years?

The video should not remain on YouTube. So if they had footage of your mother getting killed would it still be okay to keep it up there?? Think about what you said.... He has a mother, a son, and family that love n care for him u think they wanna log on a website and see some shit like that? Are you kidding me?!?!
