Last week, a 13-year-old boy was fatally shot in the back in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn. Now police have released an image of the suspect in his death.
Police say that Akbar Johns, 17, is wanted in connection for Ronald's murder. Police are asking that anyone with information to call Crime stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) to contact them via the Crime Stoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM.
Police received a call around 12:42 a.m. last Friday and when they arrived, they found the boy by Tapscott Street & Blake Avenue. Ronald died on the way to the hospital. His mother told NBC New York, "My son was a good kid, wasn't involved in gang stuff. That didn't deserve to happen to him, too much violence going on. That was my baby."
