A man was fatally shot while sitting in a double-parked SUV on a Brooklyn street early this morning. A woman who was also in the SUV and is reportedly the man's girlfriend was wounded.

Police say that shooting occurred just before 1 a.m. in front of 675 Halsey Street in Bedford-Stuyvesant. Responding officers found the male driver and female passenger shot inside a double-parked 2007 Mercedes Benz SUV. The woman, 22, was taken to Kings County Hospital where she was treated for a gunshot wound to the torso.

The driver, Ernest Brown, 33, was pronounced dead at Interfaith Hospital; he had been shot in the head and torso.

PIX 11 reports that the shooter was wearing "a dark blue-colored hoodie" and "walked up to their vehicle and fired at least 12 times at point-blank range.

Brown, a handyman and the father of eight children, had been shot last year. The mother of one of Brown's children told NBC New York, "He tried to do right. He lived by his kids. All he wanted was the best for his kids."

A relative told PIX 11 that Brown might have been targeted because of an old "beef." "This is Brooklyn, you don't what's going on in the streets. He don't have nothing to do with it but by being with someone they don't like and it just goes back and forth."
