The victim was nearing the corner at 8:30 am when the assassin opened fire, hitting him in the chest and leg.

The victim, identified as Classon Avenue resident Terrell Canty, was rushed to Brooklyn Hospital, where he died of his injuries.

Traffic along Lafayette Avenue was blocked for more than an hour as the shooting was investigated, police said.
