113th Precinct: Homicide


A 23-year-old Brooklyn man was killed and another man was shot outside a strip mall in St. Albans on Wednesday, police said.

Around 3:50 a.m., a ShotSpotter siren activation—which is a computer program that detects gunshots—alerted police that shots had been fired in the vicinity of 126-14 Merrick Blvd.

Upon arrival, police observed two men with gunshot wounds, both of whom were transported to Jamaica Hospital. Chad Baldeo, a Brooklyn resident, died from gunshot wounds to the torso, while a second, unidentified man was shot in the lower leg and was listed in stable condition, police said.

No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing, police said.
