A 19-year-old man was killed on an East New York street on Tuesday night.

Police say officers responded to a 911 call just before 6:45 p.m. about a shooting at the corner of Elton Street and New Lots Avenue, where they found an unresponsive "male with a gunshot wound to the head" outside a bodega. The victim, identified as Jeremiah Dickey, was taken to Brookdale Hospital where he was pronounced deceased.

Dickey lived around the corner on Elton Street. Neighbor Maria Mondello told reporters that Dickey's mother recently had a stroke and that he was one of eight children. "He was a good kid. Never caused problems. Everyone was shocked," she told the Post. "There’s a lot of kids around here where you wouldn’t be shocked. But everyone was shocked when they found out it was Jeremiah. Even the guy in the bodega was crying."

"He’s a nice boy," a worker at the bodega said in a conversation with WCBS 2. "I know him and he knows me... I never see him [have a] problem with nobody."

Mondello lamented young people being "quick to pick up guns" to the Daily News. "Guns are forever. Not only did the guy who shot him change his life, he changed his mother’s life."

Dickey was reportedly on Facebook Live at the time of the shooting. Police are investigating the shooting; no details about the suspect, who fled the scene, have been released.

On Monday night, Shameek Lilly, 43, was fatally shot in the lobby of his apartment building on White Plains Road in the Bronx. He had just come back from the store, and his groceries were reportedly near his body. His mother told WABC 7, "He just finished his OSHA training, he was getting on his feet trying to get his life together, trying to get on the good foot."
