NYPD Investigates Fatal Shooting Of South Carolina Man In Brooklyn

NEW YORK (CBS 2) –   Police were sorting out the details of a deadly shooting in Brooklyn, Dave Carlin reports.

Candles were left on an East Flatbush sidewalk for Trevonne Winn, murdered on a spot far from home.  Relatives said the 24-year-old from Red Hill, South Carolina, was in the area to visit his Aunt.

His execution style murder was caught on restaurant surveillance video at 7:40 p.m. Saturday on Nostrand Avenue.

Winn on his cell phone, the suspect whose face is never visible, walked up to him, then repeatedly fired into him at close range.

“Senseless, he didn’t know nobody out here,” said Rob Tory of East Flatbush.

“Twenty-four-years-old, he aint even really started life. This is the community you live in,” lamented resident Tawanda Talford.

Winn was pronounced dead here at Kings County Hospital Center. He leaves behind a young daughter, only 16-months-old.

“Might be mistaking somebody else, I don’t know,” said Angelo Charles of East Flatbush. “I opened the door, seen it, then went back upstairs.”

When contacted by phone, the baby’s mother and Winn’s girlfriend, Andreaka Broom, said he had no enemies.

“He had dreams. And all that was cut short,” she said.

Broom urged the killer in the video to think of the baby girl and all the grieving family and friends and to turn himself in to police.

    Almost everyday you hear of some african american man shooting or stabbing
    another brother or sister; I’m a african american man and it’s a shame to say that but it’s true. For some crazy reason or another, a large percentage of black men and some women just don’t have respect for life. Look at how many black mothers are just killing out in the world with ease it seems like; Look at how many black men are just raping our black women out there; It’s about vocalizing what’s really going on out here in brooklyn and many other urban cities. The question is why? Why do we as black people think it’s ok to abuse and kill our own children? Why do we as black people think is ok to rape our beautiful black sisters? Why do we as black people think it’s ok to continue to kill each other for idiotic reasons? It’s more likely that a black man will try to take your life than any other person of another race. And that’s really a shame.

    Bill you are 1000% correct. This hiphop culture is destroying our people and culture. Sometimes I feel Black people are cursed and doomed to fail. The sagging pants, the ebonics, lack of morals, the glorification of being a thug all make me sick. Sad to say this but if I were white I would hate black people too.

    You people are up here stating your opinions no one can’t disagree with freedom of speech but they can point out the level of your morality and by reading some of your comments I see that most of you are ignorant arrogant chauvinistic racists hiding behind a damn computer screen you know wouldn’t dare saying that out loud but behind closed doors your cowards just trying to be noticed mind you this comment is coming from an educated black woman. Good day

    I AGREE WITH YOU. DESEGREGATION HAS DESTORYED ALOT AFRICAN’S AMERICANS ABILITY TO DO FOR OUR SELVES. DURING SEGREGATION, BLACK PEOPLE REFUSED TO ACCEPT THE RACIST TREATMENT WHILE TRYING TO SPEND THEIR MONEY, SO WE SERVED OURSELVES. IF YOU WANTED A NEW COUCH, THERE WERE BLACK OWNED FURNITURE SHOPS IN HARLEM. NOW ALL OF THAT’S GONE DUE DESEGREGATION. IT’S UNFORTNATE, BUT IT’S THE TRUTH.

    YOU R A RACIST BIGOT
    PEOPLE LIKE YOU..GIVE A BAD NAME TO THE GOOD PEOPLE….JUST SHUT UP …SIT DOWN ……YOU MIGHT LEARN A LESSON OR TWO

    @RosyPosy, I believe you are on the wrong forum. If you want to be someone’s English teacher, I would suggest you find the right forum.

      Amen!!!!!!!!!!!

    People in this age and time are senseless, out of control animals. They see life as a thing, a thing which you can just get rid of any moment, much like a toy. Life is so very precious and it shouldn’t end in one of these animals’ hand.

    1. ryan says:

      You really mean “People in this age and time are senseless, out of control PEOPLE….Life is so very precious and its shouldn’t end in one of these HUMANS’ hand.”

      When was the last time a giraffe went up to someone and shot them? When was the last time an antelope embezzled money? When was the last time a parakeet robbed a bank? NEVER – because PEOPLE commit crimes. Don’t defame the names of innocent animals. Call a spade a spade. Bad PEOPLE ONLY do this nonsense.

      That is too easy an excuse!
      For the high level of crime in the black community.
      .
      obama is black, came from a fatherless home.
      But he had a mother, grand mother, grand father
      who taught him values!!!!!

      I grew up in harlem, have 4 college degrees.
      my own business and have been a college teacher.
      all because of vales learned as a child.

      black english, black violent hip hop language,
      black teen violent slang, 4 letter speech,
      in correct grammer and a lack of values!

      produce drug dealers and criminals.

      Thank you russel simmons, 50 cents, jay zee,
      and all the other hi hop trash who inspire
      black youth to oblivion rather than excllence.

      It’s the do nothing culture of black youths.

      Try to change it, help a kid find a job.
      start a scout troop, tutor a kid,
      volunteer to start a church youth group.
      do something other than talk.
      I have done all of the above

      1. RosyPosy says:

        For someone who claims to have “4 college degrees”, your grammar, sentence structure, and vocabulary are hardly that of a college graduate. Many grade-school children can write more intelligently. Good try, though.

      VIDEO GAMES DON’T HELP. I WAS SHOCKED TO SEE THE AMOUNT OF BLOOD AND GUTS IN THESE VIDEO GAMES.
