Police sources said that Chatavia Walls, 33, who were shot after asking the man to stop detonating explosives, died of her wounds Friday night in Brookdale Hospital.
The walls were photographed eight times at 1259 Loring Ave. At Pink Houses around 8:30 pm. The sources said that her companion Kelvin Hernandez was also injured.
Eric Adams, president of Brooklyn Borrow, said last month that unlawful fireworks were a “peaceful action”, and he urged residents to “talk to young people or people using fireworks in your building” instead of calling 911 or 311.
The walls made an apparently fatal mistake by telling the man, who is still at large, to stop the fireworks. Police said the suspect just left to return with a pistol and shot the stricken walls and Hernandez while trying to escape.
Adams, who spoke about the fireworks scourge at a news conference last month, insisted on Saturday that “the first line of interaction when it comes to non-criminal behavior should be between neighbors.
Adams added: “If the situation escalates to the point that someone has become disrespectful or violent, then the police must be called.” “We can never and will not condone any form of violence. The person who shot Mrs. Walls must be found and held criminally responsible. My heart is for her and her whole family in this terrible accident.”
Police statistics showed that gunfire erupted across the city after the New York Police disbanded a civilian-style crime-fighting police unit with three times the number of shootings in the last two weeks of the month during the same period in 2019.
