In the car to have dinner with his family, the 12-year-old boy suddenly collapsed and died suddenly
American media reported that 12-year-old Kade Lewin was shot dead in a car parked in a parking lot as his family was preparing to go out to dinner. Police believe the shooting happened for another reason.
The East Flatbush neighborhood where 12-year-old Kade Lewin died is in turmoil because of the tragedy. The incident left bullet wounds for a nearby beauty salon, leaving the owner fearing for his own life.
Owner Patricia said the bullets went through a building window, hit a wall and destroyed a mirror. “I also didn’t know the bullets went into the shop. The police saw and informed me. I was panicking and shaking. Thank God I wasn’t there because I could have been a victim of this. That’s where I usually work. Sometimes my daughter even sits on a chair in the shop” said the beauty salon owner.
According to local media, young Kade Lewin was shot dead by thugs while sitting in a car with his 20-year-old cousin. According to police sources, the cause of Kade’s shooting may have been because the thugs had confused his identity. The boy was confirmed dead at the scene. Police have not yet been able to provide any description of the suspect in the shooting.
Kade’s 20-year-old cousin, who was in the car with Kade, was also injured after being shot multiple times. According to the police, Kade’s 8-year-old cousin, Kylie Thompson, was lucky to not be hit even though she was in the car. Authorities believe the gunman prowled the property at least once in a stolen vehicle before opening fire and mistakenly shooting at the victims, the New York Post reported.
A witness named Rodde said she heard about seven to 10 gunshots before running to the scene and witnessing the boy’s mother, Suzette Lewin, holding her son in her arms.
“She is holding the baby’s head. It’s too scary. It’s already dangerous to go out on the street, now it’s not safe to stay in your own house. I could have died in my house. This heartbreaking incident will take a long time to resolve“, Rodde recalls.
Over the weekend, neighbors paid tribute to the boy by placing flowers and souvenirs at the site of the shooting. Talking to The Post on April 2, family and friends all remember Kade. He is an intelligent child, the treasure of his mother. “He always gets an A at school“, said Kade’s brother.
Kade lives with his mother, Suzette Lewin, in the Flatlands. The mother did not expect that, while taking her son to eat, the boy suddenly collapsed and died suddenly. The shooting has outraged family and local officials, including New York State Senator Zellnor Myrie, who has called on the state to raise funds aimed at community safety.
During a press conference over the weekend, the senator said: “Our hearts sank when we heard the news of the shooting that claimed that little life. We’re going to remember this boy today, and tomorrow the state should know what it’s going to spend money on.“.
This year, New York City has seen a 17% increase in shootings compared to the same period last year, the Post reported.
