79-year-old shot dead
At 2:24 a.m. Sunday, police were dispatched to 1091 Gates Ave. in Brooklyn, where they found James Jackson, 79, lying unconscious with a gunshot wound to the neck.
Paramedics took Jackson to Woodhull Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, police said.
Police were at the scene for several hours on Sunday after receiving a call from a neighbor who identified herself as Joyce. Joyce called 911 for Jackson’s wife who is blind.
“She said, ‘Joyce could you come down here, I can’t wake up Tyrone’, he was laying in the couch in a puddle of blood,” Joyce explained to CBS 2′s Steve Langford.
