A woman was seen in a chilling video killing her ex-girlfriend on a Brooklyn, New York street.
Nichelle Thomas, 52, was shot in the head just before 1 p.m. Wednesday, April 21, outside a bodega at Fourth Avenue and St. Marks Place in Park Slope.
The shooting was captured on surveillance video. it shows a woman wearing all black running up behind the victim. The woman then pulls a gun and shoots the victim point-blank in the head before fleeing.
Thomas is seen falling to the ground. She was pronounced dead at a hospital.
The suspect, Latisha Bell, accompanied by her criminal defense attorney, turned herself in at the 78th Precinct police station hours later.
Police say the women used to be in a relationship. It isn’t clear when they broke up.
The fatal shooting was the first recorded in the Park Slope neighborhood this year, according to the NYPD.
Witnesses in the normally safe neighborhood were shocked over the daylight violence.
“I’ve been working here for 12 years and I’ve never seen anything like this,” said bodega cashier Mohammed Ali.
“It’s scary. If the bullet hadn’t hit her, I might have been the one hit,” said Ali, 57.
Ali said he heard one shot, which he knew was from a gun.
He said he ran outside and saw “a lady lying face-up on the sidewalk and above her eyes was a hole with blood coming out.”
Bell, with her lawyer in tow, surrendered to cops at the 78th Precinct station house hours later. She was later charged with murder and criminal possession of a weapon.
The shooting was the first recorded in the neighborhood this year, according to NYPD data, and comes as the Big Apple experiences a nearly yearlong surge of gun violence.
The mayor’s office on Tuesday announced an initiative to curb gunplay during the summer, when cities historically see an uptick — but the plan mirrored the failed policing strategy from last year.
Andrea Iglesias, 52, told The Post as he looked at the scene of the latest act of bloodshed, “It’s unreal what’s happening in this city.
“This is a good area. People don’t get shot here, especially in broad daylight on a busy intersection. There’s so little enforcement anymore, people feel emboldened.”
