Chopper 2 was over the scene Friday night. Authorities say officers responded to a call just before 6 p.m. at an apartment building on Flatbush Avenue.
They found teenager Samuel Joseph with gunshot wounds to his head and torso. He was rushed to Kings County Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
According to Joseph’s family, the teen went to the store to buy food and when he came back the suspect pushed the 15-year-old inside the door and shot him.
“Sam was a good kid. He’d go to school like any other kid… he’s not a gang member, he’s not into any type of situation that would cause this,” a member of the Joseph family told CBS2’s Aundrea Cline-Thomas.
Police have not made any arrests in the case and are reportedly looking for the gunman and a possible accomplice, according to CBS2’s Dave Carlin.
